Structure activity and molecular modeling studies will help identify the molecular features that contribute to activity and provide a basis for the rational design and synthesis of new ligands. In addition to pharmacological characterization of new compounds, biological studies will compare the affinity and efficiacy of several putative slective M1 muscarinic agonists at muscarinic receptors expressed in cultured cell lines and in the brain. Further studies will examine the ability of a few active and slective compounds to penetrate into the brain and reverse memory deficits associated with lesions of the septohippocampal cholinergic system.

These findings are exciting both for the insight they provide for understanding the drastic morphological changes associated with apoptosis, and for the potential links between apoptosis in Alzheimer's disease and hyperphosphorylated tau. There is increasing evidence that apoptotic-like processes may contribute to the neuronal death in Alzheimer's disease, as well as other neurodegenerative disorders. In Alzheimer's disease brain, extensively hyperphosphorylated tau forms paired helical filaments (PHFs).

Millions are currently being spent on large-scale prevention trials, with AD symptoms as end-points. By providing a biomarker of pre-symptomatic AD progression, fMRI could potentially reduce the duration and costs of such trials. This continuation proposal is designed to detect changes in brain function in high-AD risk individuals over time. We will study normal education-matched groups of high- and low-AD risk subjects in the age ranges 40-65 and 65-90 years, using fMRI stimulus tasks which have previously demonstrated regional disparities in high-AD risk individuals.
