New technique images amyloid-β plaques in the brain in 3-D
Although amyloid-β plaques are one of the hallmarks of Alzheimer’s disease, scientists still don’t know what triggers the formation of the peptide clumps or what they do to surrounding brain tissue. A new technique that produces three-dimensional images of such plaques in mouse and human brains could help researchers start to answer those questions, say the method’s developers (Cell Rep. 2016, DOI: 10.1016/j.celrep.2016.06.060). . . .
