Development of neuro-immune cross talk and its role for pathologies later in life

The communication between the central nervous and immune system has come to the fore over the last decades, because of its unique function in homeostasis in health and diseases. While classical resident macrophages of the CNS play an increasing role in regulating this equilibrium and the communication between different brain areas, the vertical transmission of [...]
