The positron emission tomography (PET) ligand (11) C-labeled Pittsburgh compound B (PIB) is used to image β-amyloid (Aβ) deposits in the brains of living subjects with the intent of detecting early stages of Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, deposits of human-sequence Aβ in amyloid precursor protein transgenic mice and non-human primates bind very little(More)
Computational models of complex systems, such as signaling networks and biological systems, can be used to explain the behavior of such systems under various conditions. The large number of integrated processes and variables, and the nonlinearities inherent in the fundamental processes, make it difficult for scientists unassisted by computer simulations to(More)
