Building connections: Neurotrophic factors in dementia

The hallmark of the pathology of Alzheimer’s dementia is the accumulation of beta-amyloid protein fragments that have aggregated outside neurons in the brain. Also of importance are tau tangles that are twisted in neurons and eventually lead to the death of neurons thereby affecting brain tissue. This pathological development occurs progressively over many years before symptoms emerge. One of the concerns regarding the development of dementia is the ability to create new neural connections. Synaptogenesis is the creation of new synapses resulting in new connections between pre-existing brain neurons. Brain neurons form synapses throughout the life span. This process is initiated by neuronal depolarization, however the numbers of synapses formed is dependent on the level of three key nutrients—uridine, the omega-3 fatty acid DHA, and choline. » Read more...
