In recent years, the linkage between the nervous system and the immune system has been the focus of much attention. In addition to neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's disease, the involvement of the immune system has begun to be strongly implicated in the pathogenesis of psychiatric disorders such as autism spectrum disorder (ASD). It is also becoming clear that immune cells are involved in brain development and aging. The interaction between various immune cells and nervous system cells is thought to be important in various events such as pathological conditions, development, and aging.
Using a mouse model of cerebral infarction, we have reported on the regulatory mechanisms of inflammation and neurological symptoms by immune responses after cerebral infarction. In this seminar, we will introduce immune responses in the brain during various central nervous system (CNS) diseases and brain development.
