Microglia in the primate macula: specializations in microglial distribution and morphology with retinal position and with aging

Abstract

Microglia, the principal resident immune cell in the retina, play constitutive roles in immune surveillance and synapse maintenance, and are also associated with retinal disease, including those occurring in the macula. Perspectives on retinal microglia function have derived largely from rodent models and how these relate to the macula-bearing primate… (More)
