"Searching for common pathways underlying diverse neurodegenerative pathologies in Alzheimer's disease"

Summary: There are multiple types of pathology in Alzheimer’s Disease (AD). Therapeutic approaches mainly target one type of pathology and have been disappointing. Diverse neuropathologies related to AD may share a common origin in dysfunction of the neuronal lysosome. We explore links between lysosome function and neuropathology and cognition in humans and animal models of AD.
