ALZForum reports on our publication in Nature Medicine, where our lab identified two key networks of dysregulated genes — one in neurons, the other in glia — in multiple animal models of frontotemporal dementia (FTD) and Alzheimer’s disease.
Our paper in Neuron (A Quantitative Framework to Evaluate Modeling of Cortical Development by Neural Stem Cells) highlights key differences between widely used stem cell models and in vivo brains.
