Three studies presented at SfN Neuroscience 2019 have shed light on the complex interplay between microglia in neuroinflammation and disease pathology in mice.
A recently published study has indicated that eliminating microglia could significantly reduce tau-linked brain damage in mice, providing a path for novel treatments.
Acquiring viable astrocytes and microglia from adult brain tissue: an interview with Pascale Eede & Verena Haage
At the Glial meeting in Portugal, we had the fantastic opportunity of interviewing Pascale Eede and Verena Haage about their research with astrocytes and microglia, as well as their experiences on acquiring viable glial cells from adult brain tissues.
Long-term antibiotic treatment may reduce the size of amyloid plaques and could alter the appearance of microglia in the brains of male mice.
Whilst at the ARUK Conference 2019, we had the pleasure of speaking with Hugh Perry about neuroinflammation and Alzheimer’s disease, particularly the role of microglia in brain homeostasis.
In this interview, we spoke with Justin Lathia about sexual dimorphism in glioblastoma, including his talk on sex differences in microglia and the glioma microenvironment.
Excessive stress during childhood or fetal development can have long-term consequences on the brain, with research from SfN Neuroscience uncovering new mechanisms and therapeutic targets.
Recent research has reported on the sex-specific differences in microglia, indicating that this could change how we treat neurological diseases.
A new study has demonstrated a distinctive pattern of unusual gene activity in the brains of autistic individuals; a finding that indicates several possible new drug targets.
Researchers have identified that microglia proliferation could have a role in neuropathic pain, indicating a new avenue for research into novel treatments.
