Using mice as a model for Alzheimer's disease

from Understanding Animal Research

Mice can be used to mimic Alzheimer's disease in humans. Alzheimer's disease is the most common type of dementia. Currently there are no effective treatments so mice models offer one approach to both understanding and developing treatments for Alzheimer's. Here we see mice digging and burrowing.
