A vicious feedback loop underlying brain degeneration in Alzheimer's disease may explain why so many drug trials have failed, according to researchers.

These findings offer a compelling example of the brain's remarkable capacity to adapt in response to trauma. They also point to new, activity-centered treatment strategies that could one day result in faster and more complete recovery times for patients looking to regain mobility after a brain damage or a stroke.
