Microglia! 

These beautiful cells are very important 

regulators of  neuronal communication in the brain, even assisting with synaptic connections and plasticity. Check out our Research page to learn about how we visualize these cells and how we aim to uncover their functions in hypoxic (low oxygen) conditions.
