New review article!
Did you know that chronic stress is a risk factor for developing psychiatric conditions?
If this is news to you, then you might like to check out this review article published in Neurology – Neuroimmunology & Neuroinflammation earlier this year: https://lnkd.in/dAuWvwQa
Here, Eva Schramm and Ari Waisman will guide you through the axis linking chronic stress with immune system activation. They neatly explain how chronic stress can activate and then alter the phenotype and function of microglia in defined brain regions. By the end, you should see how, given their strategic location within the central nervous system, microglia are important mediators of psychopathologies.
Congratulations to Eva and Ari for compiling this intriguing review – we were delighted to take a sneak peek before submission!
