A Neuron’s haircut

A neuron goes to the microglia's hair saloon for a synaptic sprout


“Hoy do you like your synapses?”

The neuron is already adult. A microglia makes a cut of synapses in the hairdresser. “The same hairstyle as always?” Asked the microglia to the neuron. She replied: “Today I want a little shorter back here, there are some connections there that are causing more confusion and irritability, than anything else. But up here let it grow, I want to get with it to the frontal cortex”. “It’s a long way!” Exclaimed the microglia, “Well let’s start at once, take advantage of the fact that the human being is in a REM sleep where I can do my job better. Do you have something to drink?” “Yes please”.
