Amyloid beta protein deposition is a universal feature of Alzheimer's disease brain. To investigate the effects of amyloid beta protein in aged primates, intracerebral microinjections of solubilized amyloid beta (A beta (1-40)) and control peptides were made into the frontal cortex of 7 primates under stereotactic guidance. Control injections consisted of(More)
