Induced Damage Models

Scopolamine induced amnesia is one of the most common AD-related model targeting cholinergic neurons, which is often used to explore the role of cholinergic in dementia and to screen drugs for AD. In addition, there are other substances that cause similar pathological phenotypes of AD, including okadaic acid for tau phosphorylation, endotoxins for brain inflammation, sodium azide for mitochondrial dysfunction and heavy metal for inducing reactive oxygen species.
