Neurodegenerative diseases such as alzheimer’s and parkinson’s are devastating dementia conditions with poorly understood mechanisms and no known cures. Yet, they exhibit a characteristic invasion pattern through the brain associated with cognitive deficits and pathologies. How can we use mathematics to understand this process? By linking new mathematical theories to recent progress in imaging, we can unravel some of the universal features associated with dementia and, more generally, brain functions.
