Microglial cell size affects overall process characteristics. Sholl analysis of microglial cells divided into quartiles on the basis of size revealed a marked increase in process complexity as cell size increased. Overall differences by group were determined from the trapezoidal area under each Sholl curve (inset graphs). Black circles, Q1; white circles, Q2; black triangles, Q3; white triangles, Q4; * P <0.05; ** P <0.01; *** P <0.001.
