  • As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at a much more rapid rate. In MS it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which is a potential area to target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
