The interactions between dying neurons and phagocytotic cells within the developing and injured retina remain controversial. The present work explored the role of microglia and investigated whether so-called resident microglial cells are permanently responsible for removing cell debris whenever it is produced. As a first goal, I characterized some… (More)
