Microglia: Picky Brain Eaters


Villani, Ambra; Peri, Francesca (2019). Microglia: Picky Brain Eaters. Developmental Cell, 48(1):3-4.

Abstract

Many aspects of brain development, function, and repair depend on the interaction of neurons with brain immune cells, the microglia. By combining CLEM and SPIM microscopy, a recent study has challenged the current view that microglia can "eat" entire synapses, highlighting the incredible complexity of neuronal-microglial interactions in vivo.
