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

For decades, researchers have debated whether Alzheimer’s disease starts independently in vulnerable brain regions at different times, or if it begins in one region and then spreads to neuroanatomically connected areas. 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
