    Cerebral blood flow and cerebrovascular reactivity are preserved in a mouse model of cerebral microvascular amyloidosis

    Leon P Munting et al.
    The causal link between capillary amyloid‑β accumulation in the brain and cerebrovascular dysfunction, previously established in the Tg‑SwDI mouse model, is to be mitigated and remains to be fully uncovered.

    Clearance of beta-amyloid is facilitated by apolipoprotein E and circulating high-density lipoproteins in bioengineered human vessels

    Jerome Robert et al.
    Modelling beta-amyloid deposition in bioengineered human vessels represents a notable advance to further investigate the role of the vasculature in Alzheimer's disease.

    Increased expression of heme-binding protein 1 early in Alzheimer's disease is linked to neurotoxicity

    Oleksandr Yagensky et al.
    Increased levels of brain Hebp1 starting from the presymptomatic stage of Alzheimer’s disease contributes to progressive neuronal loss by triggering mitochondrial-dependent apoptosis in neurons exposed to elevated heme.

    Non-invasive imaging of CSF-mediated brain clearance pathways via assessment of perivascular fluid movement with diffusion tensor MRI

    Ian F Harrison et al.
    The first non-invasive technique to assess the action of brain clearance mechanisms, driven by the perivascular inflow of cerebrospinal fluid, has been developed using magnetic resonance imaging.

    Presynaptic APP levels and synaptic homeostasis are regulated by Akt phosphorylation of huntingtin

    Julie Bruyère et al.
    Reducing Akt-mediated huntingtin phosphorylation decreases APP accumulation at the synapse by reducing its anterograde axonal transport and ameliorates learning and memory in a mouse model of familial Alzheimer disease.

    Aquaporin-4-dependent glymphatic solute transport in the rodent brain

    Humberto Mestre et al.
    An international collaboration between five independent research groups replicates findings confirming the importance of aquaporin-4 in glymphatic solute transport using five different mouse knockout lines.

    Intracellular uptake of macromolecules by brain lymphatic endothelial cells during zebrafish embryonic development

    Max van Lessen et al.
    The discovery of a unique brain lymphatic cell type in the zebrafish model will facilitate the study of embryonic development and physiology, an essential mission to understand how clearance of macromolecules impact neurological diseases.

    Opposite changes in APP processing and human Aβ levels in rats carrying either a protective or a pathogenic APP mutation

    Marc D Tambini et al.
    APP mutations that either cause or prevent dementia alter APP metabolism in a complex and opposite fashion, suggesting a link between multiple APP processing events, dementia and ageing-dependent cognitive decline.
