In response to the German and Swiss papers about microglia mentioned by Daniel Griffin in https://www.microbe.tv/twiv/twiv-955/ I posted the suggestion that Jarred Younger come on a podcast to discuss the issue with you. I suggested Immune, but should have said TWiN.
Among other things, Dr. Younger advocates experimenting with D-naltrexone for brain inflammation. https://www.uab.edu/cas/psychology/people/faculty/jarred-younger
