The role of hyperphosphorylated tau deposition across brain cell types

Create a short research paper and poster that details the types of cells in which we see deposition of pTau across various neurodegenerative diseases, focusing not only on neuronal pTau, but also glial (astrocytic, oligodendroglial) pTau. Speculate as to the reasons why these cells may take up and retain this aggregate, and speculate as to the results of pTau buildup in these cells.
