Aging Models

Aging-induced memory loss is characterized by behavioral deficit and cognitive function impairments, which often occurs along with the aging process. Therefore, aged animals may be used as a natural aging model to study the molecular mechanisms of AD as well as preclinical candidate drug screening. A variety of animals are found to spontaneously develop AD neuropathological hallmarks similar to those observed in humans.
