A new piece for an article in this week’s issue describing Microglia cells in the brain and their vital role in ensuring healthy brain function. For most of the century these cells were thought to act solely as “paramedics” tending to injury by clearing away viruses, bacteria and dying neurons. New studies suggest they are also active in the healthy brain as “gardeners” and “caretakers”. For example in pruning back overgrown neural networks and tending to the birth of new neurons and synapses as the brain develops. Original article link (intro only).

Here’s a new cover for the Norwegian Medical Journal. The issue looks at the technical and ethical complexities of valve surgery in intravenous drug users who develop infective endocarditis. Some hospitals in Norway refuse drug users a second chance at valve surgery if their continued drug use results in a relapse.
