It’s not just amyloid: White matter hyperintensities and Alzheimer’s disease

New findings by Columbia researchers suggest that along with amyloid deposits, white matter hyperintensities (WMHs) may be a second necessary factor for the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

Most current approaches to Alzheimer’s disease focus on the accumulation of amyloid plaque in the brain. The researchers at the Taub Institute for Research on Alzheimer’s Disease… It’s not just amyloid: White matter hyperintensities and Alzheimer’s disease
