Alzheimer’s disease is caused by tangles in the brain made up of malfunctioning aggregated Tau proteins. Scientists have discovered a new toxic form of Tau that forms as a result of its interaction with cell membranes. The research provides novel insights into possible mechanisms by which this protein moves in the brain and kills neurons.
