Amyloid and microglia cells in Alzheimer's disease. Illustration of amyloid plaques (orange) and microglia cells (red) among brain cells in a case of Alzheimer's disease. Microglia cells are specialised macrophages that restrain the accumulation of amyloid. Once activated, they can have harmful effects that include inflammatory factors and effects on synapses. Amyloid plaques are characteristic features of Alzheimer's disease. They lead to degeneration of the affected neurons.
