Microglia, housekeepers of the brain

Az előadás kivonata: Microglia represent a unique cell type in the central nervous system. Contrary to other cells in the brain, they are able to relocate themselves, possess rapidly moving thin processes and therefore have an ever-changing morphology. In recent years, it turned out that not only are these cells the main immune mediators of the brain, but they also have essential functions in maintaining brain physiology and influence neuronal functions. In this talk I will introduce these cells and show the audience, why microglia might be the key in fighting neurological diseases.
