Inflammation during critical windows of development contributes to behavioral affect later in life. In this of Neuron, Cao et al. (2021) demonstrate a novel mechanism through which early life Tlr4-dependent inflammation in microglia permanently alters neuronal function and leaves male mice susceptible to stress-induced depressive-like behaviors.
