Authors’ contributions

C. elegans experiments were performed by VF, VD, CMR, PG, and CDL. Neuro 2a experiments were performed by GHS. Characterization of ADDL preps was performed by PTV. ADDL-binding and toxicity assays in hippocampal cultures were performed and analyzed by PNL, and Tau phosphorylation analysis done by ND, EYF and MAS. Adenovirus transfection of cortical neurons was performed by JM. GHS, PNL, MAS, JM and CDL prepared the manuscript. All authors have read and approved the final manuscript.
