TBI and AD share many pathologic features including chronic inflammation and the accumulation of beta amyloid (A$$\beta$$). Data from both AD and TBI studies suggest that microglia play a central role in A$$\beta$$ accumulation after TBI. This paper focuses on the current research on the role of microglia response to A$$\beta$$ after TBI.
