The project we propose concerns the evaluation of new mechanisms involved in Alzheimer's disease (AD). We focus on nucleation/propagation hypothesis which suggests that poorly-shaped forms (pathological) of amyloid and tau proteins can transmit their misfolded forms to normal proteins and induce pathology. We seek to understand the reality of these mechanisms in rodents and primates and what are the functional consequences of nucleation/propagation processes on neuronal networks (assessed by MRI with resting-state fMRI).
