Microglia Sculpt Postnatal Neural Circuits in an Activity and Complement-Dependent Manner

Microglia are the resident CNS immune cells and active surveyors of the extracellular environment. While past work has focused on the role of these cells during disease, recent imaging studies reveal dynamic interactions between microglia and synaptic elements in the healthy brain. Despite these intriguing observations, the precise function of microglia at… CONTINUE READING
