This article reviews new and emerging diagnostic thera- pies for tauopathies including novel imaging techniques and Introduction biomarkers and also reviews recent tau therapeutics. Recent Findings Building evidence from animal and cell Tau is a highly soluble microtubule-associated protein which models suggests that prion-like misfolding and propagation modulates stability of axonal cytoskeleton and is encoded by of pathogenic tau proteins between brain cells are central to the MAPT gene on chromosome 17q21.3 consisting of 16 the
