“We have billions of brain cells in the human brain,” says Memorial University professor Matthew Parsons (pictured). “These cells are always communicating back and forth with each other. And this communication is absolutely essential for everything that makes us who we are.”
So, what happens at the micro level when brain-cell communication breaks down in early Alzheimer’s disease? And what could those molecular discoveries unlock in developing big new therapies or cures for dementia?
