Certain neurodegenerative disorders are characterized by the progressive accumulation of insoluble deposits of misfolded proteins. Amyloid β-protein (Aβ) oligomers affect synaptic structure and plasticity in Alzheimer's disease, and recent findings in other neurodegenerative diseases indicate that a broadly similar process of neuronal dysfunction is induced by diffusible oligomers of misfolded proteins.
