Structure of toxic tau aggregates determines type of dementia, rate of progression

A new study demonstrates that toxic tau aggregates can be used to determine which type of dementia will occur, which regions of  will be affected, and how quickly the disease will spread. Top: Dr. Marc Diamond's lab replicated distinctly patterned tau strains, shown in green, in cultured cells. Bottom: These tau strains were inoculated into the brains of mice and formed unique patterns of pathology that can be linked to specific dementias.
