Researchers at the University of Illinois at Chicago have identified a molecular switch that causes immune cells called macrophages to clean up cellular debris caused by infections instead of contributing to inflammation and tissue injury.  Working with mouse and human tissue, Johns Hopkins Medicine researchers report new evidence that a protein pumped out of some - but not all - populations of "helper" cells in the brain, called astrocytes, plays a specific role in directing the formation of connections among neurons needed for learning and forming new memories.  Researchers from Harvard University and the Broad Institute's Stanley Centre for Psychiatric Research have developed reproducible brain organoids for the first time.
