  1. The modulation of MFG-E8 mediated microglial phagocytosis

    2f75r8170?file=thumbnail
    Description: Phagocytosis is an essential mechanism for clearance of pathogens, dying cells, and other unwanted debris in order to maintain tissue health in the body. Macrophages execute this process in the peripheral immune system, but in the brain microglia act as resident macrophages to accomplish this function. In the peripheral immune...

  2. The N-Terminus of Tau in Filament Formation and the Regulation of Axonal Transport: A Perspective on Tau Assembly and Toxicity

    Qr46r0938?file=thumbnail
    Description: In several neurodegenerative diseases, the microtubule-associated protein tau self-aggregates to form filaments that accumulate in neurons and/or glia, although the relationship between tau aggregation and cell death is a subject of debate. The amino terminus of tau is involved in conformational changes that appear critical for filament formation, hinting at...

  3. Neuroinflammation in an Alzheimer's Disease Animal Model and the Effectiveness of Selective Suppression of Glial Activation

    5138jd93w?file=thumbnail
    Description: There is increasing evidence that links chronic activation of glial cells and the subsequent self-propagating cycle of neuroinflammation to the neurodegenerative progression of Alzheimer's disease (AD). Nevertheless, attempts to identify currently approved drugs capable of safely attenuating the neuroinflammatory processes in AD have proven disappointing to date, and the development...

  4. The Role of the N-terminus of Tau in Alzheimer's Disease

    Rb68xb970?file=thumbnail
    Description: The polymerization of the microtubule-associated protein, tau, into insoluble filaments is common to Alzheimer's disease (AD) and in a variety of dementias. The conformational change required for tau to transition from soluble monomers to filamentous AD pathology involves the extreme N-terminus of tau coming into contact with other regions of...

  5. Hippocampal Subfield Deformity Patterns and Memory Function in Non-semantic Primary Progressive Aphasia and Amnestic Dementia of the Alzheimer Type

    Hh63sv92f?file=thumbnail
    Description: Patients with the Primary Progressive Aphasia (PPA) clinical syndrome have diverse forms of neuropathology, one of which is the cellular and molecular abnormalities of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), at post mortem autopsy. Structural anatomical differences might aid in ante mortem differential diagnosis of neuropathology. The studies in this dissertation investigated one...
