thumbnail Researchers Explore Link Between Iron, Beta-Amyloid in Memory Disorders
In this illustration, amyloid plaques (white) are shown on neurons affected by Alzheimer’s disease. UT Dallas scientists suggest that beta-amyloid and iron may play roles in the shrinking of a brain region key for processing and recording memories. In recent years, neurology researchers have shown that accumulation of the protein beta-amyloid in the brain is [...]
