Although senile plaques and neurofibrillary tangles are regarded as main hallmarks of AD, the disease may be primarily a disorder of synaptic failure. In mild AD, there is approximately a 25% reduction in protein synaptophysin, which is a presynaptic vesicle protein . As the disease progresses, synapses are disproportionately lost relative to neurons, which correlates with dementia . Basal transmission of single impulses and long-term potentiation (LTP), which is an experimental indicator of memory formation at synapses, are both impaired in plaque-bearing mice with AD and after Aβ peptide has been applied to brain slices .
