Podcast – Neuroinflammation in mouse models

Dr Sarah Carpanini, Dr Tom Phillips and Dr Megan Torvell from the UK Dementia Research Institute at Cardiff University discuss neuroinflammation using mouse models to examine underlying pathophysiology during brain development and beyond. Join them to hear about physiological synapse loss that occurs during normal, healthy development of the brain contrasting to pathological synapse loss that occurs in Alzheimer’s Disease.

Hear more about the role of microglia and the role of the complement cascade as well as the virtues of using mouse models in general for studying an ageing disease.
