Life Stage Applicability
Key Event Relationship Description
Neurodegeneration is the loss of neuron cells in the brain. Apoptosis is a form of cell death that can cause neurodegeneration. Neurodegeneration is linked with diseases such as Alzheimer.
Evidence Collection Strategy
Evidence Supporting this KER
Apoptosis is a form of cell death, where neurodegeneration is the loss of neuron cells in the brain.
Uncertainties and Inconsistencies
More AOPs should be developed to link other forms of cell death with neurodegeneration.
