Evaluation of tau tangles and amyloid-β plaques in super agers

Takeaway

  • Super agers (SA) experienced no difference in tau tangles and amyloid-β (Aβ) plaques when compared with controls, and normal agers (NA) had tau tangles but no Aβ plaques.

Why this matters

    Understanding why some people preserve cognitive function despite advanced age may aid in the development of future treatments for cognition.
