Study shows Alzheimer’s disease may spread by ‘jumping’ from 1 brain region to another

A new study by Columbia University Medical Center (CUMC) researchers strongly supports the latter, demonstrating that abnormal tau protein, a key feature of… Study shows Alzheimer’s disease may spread by ‘jumping’ from 1 brain region to another
