Microglia, the brain’s innate immune cells, are not normally supplemented by blood-derived mononuclear cells. Consequently, they exhibit signs of aging which appears to be crucially involved in neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer’s. The seminar will cover some landmark papers on microglial population control from the last 20 years and provide an overview of the current big questions.
