New Clue to the Cause of Alzheimer's

I read most of the books published on Alzheimer's in the last five years. I also read thousands of articles. I keep wondering if scientists are looking in the right place. Is the plaque made up of beta-amyloid the place they should be looking; and if so, is the path to a remedy or cure?

The article on the next page addresses this issue. This gives me hope.

Morrison-Bogorad said the findings may help explain the discovery of plaque in the brains of people who do not develop dementia. For some time, doctors have wondered why they find some brains in autopsy that are heavily coated with beta-amyloid, but the person did not have Alzheimer's.
