Functions and mechanisms of microglia/macrophages in neuroinflammation and neurogenesis after stroke.

Abstract

Microglia/macrophages are the major immune cells involved in the defence against brain damage. Their morphology and functional changes are correlated with the release of danger signals induced by stroke. These cells are normally responsible for clearing away dead neural cells and restoring neuronal functions. However, when excessively activated by the… (More)
