Alzheimer’s disease (AD), the most common cause of dementia, is characterized by the intra- and extracellular aggregation and accumulation of proteins. The major molecular hallmark is the aggregation of amyloid-β (Aβ) and hyperphosphorylated tau proteins into plaques and tangles, respectively. Evidence points to the pre-fibrillary states of protein aggregates harboring the greatest neurotoxicity.
