Special Issue Information
There is increasing evidence that an inflammatory state negatively impacts myriad health outcomes. Effects on cognitive function and depression have also been reported and linked to inflammation. The brain's immune system primarily comprises cells called microglia, which are important for brain function. Alterations in the mechanisms that regulate the promotion of inflammatory conditions may be involved in the progression of inflammation and, particularly, neuropsychiatric disorders. In this Special Issue, we aim to promote original research and reviews that explore inflammatory biomarkers and new therapeutic molecules (of natural origin or synthetic), elucidating the molecular mechanisms involved in the anti-inflammatory response. The aim is to improve knowledge for reducing inflammation and inflammatory pathologies significantly linked to brain cells and cell bodies.
