Deciphering the Molecular Pathology of Alzheimer’s Disease

Video   Feb 08, 2017

 

Alzheimer’s disease presents stereotypical pathological features including the abundance of amyloid deposition and tauopathy. Affected brain regions also exhibit reactive astrogliosis, neuroinflammatory responses, and vascular pathology. Neuronal and synaptic loss is also evident. Various mouse lines have been created to investigate Alzheimer’s disease and most of the models exhibit a subset of the defining pathological features of the disease. In this webinar the speaker will discuss the use of Alzheimer’s disease transgenic mouse models to evaluate pathological features by both traditional immunohistochemistry and new tissue processing methods that enable whole- brain imaging. These immunolabeling methods further the investigation of molecular and neural circuit mechanisms of Alzheimer’s disease.
