Living with Dementia

Beta Amyloid Protein

Brain may ‘work around’ early Alzheimer’s damage

One of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease - the most common form of dementia - is the build-up of beta-amyloid protein deposits in the brain. Now a new study published in the journal Nature Neuroscience suggests that in some older people, the brain has a way of compensating for this damage by recruiting extra… Brain may ‘work around’ early Alzheimer’s damage
