Microglial cells rapidly become activated in response to even minor damage of neurons, suggestive of the intimate interactions between neurons and microglial cells. Although mediators for microglia-neuron interactions have not been well identified, neurotransmitters are possible candidates transmitting signals from neurons to microglial cells. Among the neurotransmitters, we focused on the effects of norepinephrine and other adrenergic agonists on the functions of rat cultured microglial cells… CONTINUE READING
