A hallmark of Alzheimer's disease, a late-onset neurodegenerative disease, is the deposition of neuritic amyloid plaques composed of aggregated forms of the β-amyloid peptide (Aβ). Aβ forms a variety of nanoscale, toxic aggregate species ranging from small oligomers to fibrils. Aβ and many of its aggregate forms strongly interact with lipid membranes, which(More)
A pathological hallmark of Alzheimer's disease (AD), a late onset neurodegenerative disease, is the development of neuritic amyloid plaques, composed predominantly of aggregates of the β-amyloid (Aβ) peptide. It has been demonstrated that Aβ can aggregate into a variety of polymorphic aggregate structures under different chemical environments, and a(More)
