While the accumulation of proteins in the brain is a marker to indicate the onset of Alzheimer's, a new study analysed the ways in which these proteins spread, that might help in describing why the disease is more prevalent in females than males. A recent study presented at the Alzheimer's Association International Conference has identified differences in the spread of a protein called tau, which is linked to cognitive impairment -- between men and women, with women showing a larger brain-wide accumulation of tau than men due to an accelerated brain-wide spread.
