Ever wondered how cells communicate with each other during brain development? What happens to cells which the body doesn’t need any longer? And how do scientists study the events that are going on inside our brain?
In the upcoming ELLS Webinar, EMBL group leader Francesca Peri looks at the brain’s phagocyting cells – the microglia – and explores how the newest imaging techniques help scientists to understand how the developing brain is protected from damage and injury.
