In Focus: The Amyloid-Tau Relationship in the Pathophysiology of Alzheimer's Disease

The pathophysiology of Alzheimer's disease (AD) involves both amyloid and tau proteins; the exploration of the respective roles of these proteins in neuronal loss and neurodegeneration has important implications for future therapeutic interventions. PET imaging of amyloid and tau plays a critical role in understanding neurodegeneration patterns and clinical manifestations of AD.
