Alzheimer’s disease (AD) is the leading form of dementia; a progressive, neurodegenerative disease that is incurable with currently available therapeutic approaches.  The pathology of AD has been classically characterized in its late stages by significant neuronal cell death linked to aberrant enzyme regulation, plaques of amyloid-beta (Aβ) and neurofibrillary tangles of tau. It has become increasingly evident that AD has its origins embedded at the neuronal synapse. Indeed, it is now widely accepted that synaptic dysfunction, which is manifest in the emergence of aberrant synaptic plasticity, is a major pathophysiological consequence of AD. The Cho group seminally characterised a novel ...
