Poor Sleep Patterns & Tau Plaque​ –

May Offer Clues to Alzheimer’s

By Robert Preidt  HealthDay Reporter

WEDNESDAY, Jan. 9, 2019 (HealthDay News) — Poor sleep is common among Alzheimer’s patients, and researchers say they’re beginning to understand why.

Scientists studied 119 people aged 60 and older. Eighty percent had no thinking or memory problems, while the rest had only mild problems.

The researchers found that participants with less slow-wave sleep — deep sleep that’s needed to preserve memories and to wake up feeling refreshed — had higher levels of the brain protein tau   

Elevated TAU levels are a possible sign of Alzheimer’s disease and have been linked to brain damage and mental decline, the scientists said.

Tau is another substance that builds up in Alzheimer’s disease and damages brain cells essential for learning and memory.

Tau buildup is caused by increased activity of enzymes that act on tau called tau kinases, which causes the tau protein to misfold and clump, forming neurofibrillary tangles.Nov 13, 2007  Staving Off Alzheimer’s Disease With The Right Diet, Prescriptions … https://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2007/11/071107211036.htm
