Researchers Discover a Role for Immune Cells Called Microglia in Inhibiting Brain Activity and Regulating Behavior
Researchers have discovered an entirely new way in which the healthy brain keeps neural activation within normal bounds. The finding, which uncovers an unexpected role of immune cells called… Read More
Brain circuits
For the first time, neuroscientists have coaxed human stem cells to grow into microglia, elusive and difficult-to-study immune cells that are essential for a healthy nervous system. The method of… Read More
