Recognition memory in muscle-specific tyrosine kinase antibody seropositive myasthenia gravis

Takeaway

  • The muscle-specific tyrosine kinase antibody seropositive (MuSK+) passive transfer myasthenia gravis (PTMG) mice model supports the cognitive dysfunction observed in people with MuSK+ myasthenia gravis (MG).

Why this matters

  • MuSK antibodies may affect the perirhinal cortex involved in recognition memory in people with myasthenia gravis.
