Recent work has implicated environmental stimuli as contributing to the risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD). Noise is one of the most important environmental health hazards for humans. Here, we propose that noise exposure, especially chronic noise exposure, can cause AD-like neuropathological changes, and that persistence of these changes have an etiological association with the development of AD. Noise can induce tau hyperphosphorylation, formation of neurofibrillary tangles (NFT) and… CONTINUE READING
