Cohen et al. show that increased abundance of smaller amyloid-β42 particles with unique structural characteristics correlates with rapid disease progression, implying prion-like amyloid-β42 strains with differing toxicities and propagation rates.
Lin et al. show that RNAi knockdown of regulators of voltage-gated sodium channel splicing reduces seizure duration in Drosophila, suggesting that targeting splicing could improve epilepsy control.
Perentos et al. validate the ovine model by revealing in vivo EEG abnormalities similar to those in affected children, and discuss the advantages of using sheep for studying progressive neurodegenerative diseases.
