Microglial Contact Prevents Excess Depolarization and Rescues Neurons from Excitotoxicity123

Abstract

Microglia survey and directly contact neurons in both healthy and damaged brain, but the mechanisms and functional consequences of these contacts are not yet fully elucidated. Combining two-photon imaging and patch clamping, we have developed an acute experimental model for studying the role of microglia in CNS excitotoxicity induced by neuronal… (More)
