TgF344-AD rat model has been revealed as an interesting animal model for investigating Alzheimer's disease. About two thirds of persons diagnosed with AD dementia are women, suggesting important sex and gender differences in risk factors for the development of AD. Therefore, it is of high interest to also investigate this issue in the AD animal models. In this study we present preliminary results regarding the effect of sex difference in the functional default mode network between young TgF344-AD rats and Wild-type.
