    Inflammation causes cerebral cortex dysfunction in multiple sclerosis

    Immune cells attack synapses

    27 January 2021 | Damage to the brain gray matter plays an important role in the progression of multiple sclerosis. A team of neuroscientists has now shown that the cause are inflammatory responses that lead to synapse loss, reducing neuronal activity.
