However, in 15 of the chronic lesions, nerve cells were increased by 72% compared with neighboring brain regions. The nerve cells showed signs of being fully mature, and these lesions also had increased densities of immature nerve cells. They also noted an increase in activated microglia, brain cells that – paradoxically – spur on the immune attack in MS but have recently been shown to promote nerve cell development.
So the microglia which are activating the T-cells and "spurring the immune attack" are also working to repair nerve cells. Truly a good cop/bad cop scenario. But why?
Cool study. Thanks, Bob!
