Brain change starts early for infants with gene linked to Alzheimer’s

For decades, researchers have been trying to determine when brain changes associated with Alzheimer’s disease first begin in patients. Now, a new study has revealed these variations may occur as early as 6 months of age.

In a new report published in JAMA Neurology, researchers have revealed that infants who carry the gene APOE-E4 – a variant associated with an increased risk for Alzheimer’s disease – also tend to have differences in brain development compared to children who don’t have the gene.
