Article Correctness Is Author's Responsibility: New research uncovers potential pathway to slowing Alzheimer’s

(University of Technology Sydney) Overcoming the loss of a process in the brain called "RNA editing" may slow the progress of Alzheimer's disease and other synaptic disorders, a study shows. RNA editing, a genetic mechanism essential in the connection between nerve cells in the brain, is deregulated in people with Alzheimer's. A scientific team has replicated this deregulated process in the brains of mice, and discovered it led to the loss of synapses, as occurs in Alzheimer's.
