Molecular Mechanisms of Memory Loss in Alzheimer’s Disease
The satellite of the FENS 2010 meeting, entitled "Molecular Mechanisms of Memory Loss in Alzheimer’s Disease" took place in Amsterdam on 2nd July 2010. MemStick consortium was among the organizers of the meeting. Other two Alzheimer and memory related consortia, MEMOSAD, MEMOLOAD, funded by EU Framework programmes, co-organized the meeting. The focus was on the interactions of two key pathological Alzheimer proteins, amyloid-beta and tau, with cellular mechanisms that allow synaptic plasticity to happen when new information is to be stored in neural networks. The program included presentation of the three consortia and short oral talks given primarily by young scientists on the latest development in this rapidly evolving field of research.
Programme and further information can be found at the meeting website.
