Heather covers papers from August 2020 on the role of neuroinflammation and glial cells on Alzheimer’s disease pathology. You’ll hear about many papers studying the role of astrocytes and microglia in AD pathology, including how they interact with cell signalling pathways and AD-associated proteins such as amyloid and tau. She ends with a couple papers that aim to understand and/or model neuroinflammation in this disease. We hope you enjoy this episode of AMiNDR!
