Microglia - cops on the beat that clear amyloid beta

Postby PhillyFree » Sat Mar 14, 2015 7:34 pm

New study out of Stanford Univ. on microglia as cops on the beat that clear amyloid-beta etc.,
suggests that it's desirable to keep microglia in good condition in order to possibly prevent AD

More on the role of microglia in relation to AD

Waves, Philly :D

It's been remarkable to see how the perceptions/understanding of microglia and amyloid beta have changed since we began our E4 journey. Has anyone seen the actual paper?

I can't focus on it now, but it would be interesting to square this with the microglia<>mast cell<>brain inflammation problems. IE, how in the world do we achieve the sweet spot. My guess is even people without mast cell activation issues may end up with hyperactive microglia in the brain due to all the environmental issues homo sapiens is dealing with.
