Researchers know that much. The problem is, underlying causes of memory problems in Alzheimer’s disease are still poorly understood.
Annabelle Singer, a new assistant professor at the College of Engineering, is trying to change that. Through studying brain activity in mice genetically programmed to get Alzheimer’s, she hopes to help chart earlier signals of disease – and maybe even engineer ways to prevent or reverse it….” Read more here
