Time-lapse Whole-field Fluorescence Imaging of Microglia Processes Motility in Acute Mouse Hippocampal Slices and Analysis
Microglia are the resident immune cells of the central nervous system (CNS). In the last year, the improvements in the transgenic mouse technologies and imaging techniques have shed light on microglia functions under physiological conditions. ...
