Talk Abstract: The hippocampus is one of the primary brain structures critical for learning and memory. The continuous and regulated production of new neurons - adult neurogenesis - in this part of the brain is believed to underpin some of the hippocampal-based cognitive functions. These newborn neurons are produced from a pool of neural preĀ­cursor/stem cells, and we have previously shown that microglia play a key role in this process although the mechanisms behind this remain poorly understood. In this talk, I will present our most recent data on regulation of adult neurogenesis by microglia following traumatic brain injury, and the implications of this for behavioural outcomes.
