characterized by the activation of microglial cells, the resident macrophage in the CNS. However, it is not fully understood how the microglia cells respond on the cytotoxic effects of UCB in the CNS. Therefore, the aim of this study is to elucidate the morphological features of microglial cells in the CNS. Our analysis was focused on the hippocampal area, based on the finding that a significantly higher indicative of neuroinflammation was found on PET study in schizophrenia (Doorduin et al… CONTINUE READING
