Researchers @IcahnMountSinai analyzed the genetic activity of thousands of human microglia, the brain’s immune cells. Findings @NatureGenet support link between those cells and some cases of #Alzheimers and #Parkinsons.

Inflammatory markers for #Alzheimers are conspicuous at early stages, based on a study of cerebrospinal fluid from more than 1,000 older adults. Good news from @NeuroCellPress: some of the markers seem to be involved in damage control.
