Accumulation and Activation of Microglia in Brain’s Hypothalamus Linked to Obesity

Accumulation and Activation of Microglia in Brain’s Hypothalamus Linked to Obesity

According to a new study, published in the December issue of Cell Reports, microglia, the brain’s immune cells responsible for its response to infection or injury, may also regulate the brain’s response to diet, and, thus play a role in obesity. The brain’s mediobasal hypothalamus (MBH) is able to sense fatty acids (FAs) and this […]
