Identifying effective treatments for Alzheimer's disease (AD) has proven challenging and has instigated a shift in AD research focus toward the earliest disease-initiating cellular mechanisms. A key insight has been an increase in soluble Aβ oligomers in early AD that is causally linked to neuronal and circuit hyperexcitability. However, other accumulating AD-related peptides and proteins, including those derived from the same amyloid precursor protein, such as Aη or sAPPα, and autonomously, such as tau, exhibit surprising opposing effects on circuit dynamics.
