Abstract

Many aspects of brain development, function, and repair depend on the interaction of neurons with brain immune cells, the microglia. By combining CLEM and SPIM microscopy, a recent study has challenged the current view that microglia can “eat” entire synapses, highlighting the incredible complexity of neuronal-microglial interactions in vivo.
