Curr Mol Med. 2021 Oct 18. doi: 10.2174/1566524021666211018112757. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTMicroglia are immune cells found in the central nervous system (CNS) involved in infection combat and cellular debris clean. These glial cells are involved in synaptogenesis during brain development by their interactions with neurons and other glial cells.
