Microglial aggregation in the dentate gyrus: a marker of mild hypoxic-ischaemic brain insult in human infants.

Abstract

There are many reports in experimental animals indicating that microglia are activated in the dentate gyrus and hippocampus following hypoxic-ischaemic brain injury. The hippocampi of brains removed at autopsy from 178 children were studied retrospectively and the quantity of microglia in the polymorphous layer of the dentate gyrus was assessed. Up to the… (More)
