  1. Smith, CJ; Bilbo, SD (2019). Microglia Sculpt Sex Differences in Social Behavior.. Neuron, 102(2), 275-277. [doi]

    Abstract:
    Microglia are increasingly recognized as developmental sculptors of neural circuits. In this issue of Neuron, VanRyzin et al. (2019) demonstrate a novel mechanism by which endocannabinoids drive microglia to phagocytose newborn astrocytes in the medial amygdala of male rats, promoting sex differences in social play behavior.
