Microglia processes appear to preferentially contact TBI-induced proximal axonal swellings. Representative 3D reconstructions of MBP+ myelinated axons (red) or APP+ axonal swellings (green) and Iba-1+ microglia (white) in sham-injured (a) or central fluid percussion injured (b) thalami. c Bar graph depicting the average number of Iba-1+ microglial processes contacting either MBP+ myelinated fibers in the sham animals or APP+ axonal swellings in injured animals. Graph depicts the mean ± standard error of the mean. *p < 0.05. Scale bar: 5 μm
