Living with Dementia

Micro Gliosis

Shedding light on early Parkinson’s disease pathology

In a mouse model of early Parkinson’s disease (PD), animals displayed movement deficits, loss of tyrosine-hydroxylase (TH)-positive fibers in the striatum, and astro-gliosis and micro-gliosis in the substantia nigra (SN), without the loss of nigral dopaminergic neurons. These findings, which may cast light on the molecular processes involved in the initial stages of PD,… Shedding light on early Parkinson’s disease pathology
