Project Description

New research by Dr. Claudio Cuello and his colleagues is challenging a commonly accepted model of NGF metabolism in Alzheimer’s Disease. This animation was created for students, researchers, and other neuroscientists – to be used in presentations, lectures, and other academic spaces. The animation illustrates an updated model of the NGF metabolic pathway in cortical cholinergic neurons, and it offers us an emergent explanation of its implications in Alzheimer’s pathology.
