To Think or Not to Think: Synaptic Activity and Abeta Release

Brock E Schroeder et al. Neuron. .

Abstract

Accumulation of beta-amyloid protein (Abeta) in the extracellular space of the brain has been hypothesized to be a culprit in the pathogenesis of Alzheimer's disease. In this issue of Neuron, Cirrito et al. describe a series of experiments demonstrating that extracellular Abeta levels are directly modulated by neuronal and synaptic activity.
