We did not detect any glia or microglia activation in WT-APP (Fig. 3C and F) compared with WT-GFP (Fig. 3B and E), meaning that the neuroinflammation does not play a role in the memory deficit we observed PubMed:27522251

However, we identify a possible role of the alpha7 subunit in the normal aging process that should be further investigated PubMed:27522251

The hAPP-SLA transduction in DG did not induce a memory deficit in beta2 KO, meaning that the Abeta/beta2-nAChR interaction is required to drive the memory deficit in this model PubMed:27522251
