Abstract

Several biochemical events underlying the hallmark lesions of the Alzheimer's disease are calcium-dependent processes, and appear to be inactivated during the disease progression. Therefore, it is reasonable to propose that, contrary to the current beliefs, there is a deficit in the level of intracellular calcium in the early phase of this disease process.
