Fractional diffusion in the glial scar

Implantation of electrodes in the brain induces a state of neuroinflammation, which is thought to be detrimental for the neurons surrounding the electrode. Mechanisms of this type of neuroinflammation are still poorly understood. Recent experimental and theoretical results point to the  role of diffusing species in this process. A recently published paper in Journal of Theoretical  Biology considers… Read more »
