In Alzheimer’s disease, the tau proteins become damaged, clumping together, which is then “toxic” to brain cells, causing them to die.

As brain cells die, and messages are unable to be delivered as effectively as before, thinking difficulties emerge.

“Research is now focused on why tau is damaged in these conditions and how exactly it causes the death of neurons,” Dementias Platform UK noted.

As for amyloid, it can be processed into a healthy soluble protein or toxic amyloid-beta.
