by TERESA ANN EVANS Microglia and macrophages are two phagocytic cell types that found in the Central Nervous System (CNS). Microglia are present in the normal CNS and play a role in both homeostasis and disease while macrophages are not present in large numbers in the healthy CNS. After an insult, microglia become activated and macrophages infiltrate into the tissue from the circulation. Both of these cell types express many of the same markers and display similar morphology, making them so… CONTINUE READING
