Influenza Infection Induces Neuroinflammation, Alters Hippocampal Neuron Morphology, and Impairs Cognition in Adult Mice
TLDR
These data provide the first evidence that neuroinflammation and changes in hippocampal structural plasticity may underlie cognitive dysfunction associated with influenza infection, and the heightened inflammatory state concurrent with reduced neurotrophic support could leave the brain vulnerable to subsequent insult following influenza infection.

Microglial Priming in Infections and Its Risk to Neurodegenerative Diseases
TLDR
The relationship between infections and neurodegenerative diseases and how this may rely on microglial priming is discussed, which is a transitory state in microglia that may lead to changes in their state and function, making priming them for subsequent immune challenges not be beneficial.
