Mice do not naturally get Alzheimers.

The researchers said they plan to further explore the underlying psychological processes responsible for the differences in memory abilities by imaging methods for measuring brain activity. Mice do not naturally get Alzheimer’s, so the animals in this study were genetically engineered to express the human protein responsible, called amyloid beta These mice develop a syndrome with many features of the human disease, said Eckenhoff. Post-Doctoral Fellow and first author Shannon Bianchi exposed, middle-aged Alzheimer mice to anesthetics at low concentrations for two hours per day over moderating total of five days, not unusual for a clinical scenario. The cognitive abilities of the mice were then analyzed using behavioral tests behavioral tests, and their brains were examined for plaque and cell death..
