as a non science person living with ALZ this is very interesting information. My thoughts on plaques and tangles were that they might possibly be protective reactions against something, like scar tissue. It is frustrating to be waiting for some newer concept to appear, to see relationships between neurological diseases, and yet research goes on in the same vein. Aside from foods which seem to abate inflammation (another protective body response?) an understanding that the MIND may be more than brain functions would impact the care of people with ALZ. Right now caregivers seem to accept the disease leaves us as non-persons…my experience was very different, it required me to communicate differently. Good work.
