Brain Waves: Zombie (Cells) In Your Brain and Body

What if you were told that you had “zombie cells” in your brain? And that they have an impact on age-related diseases like Alzheimer’s or even cancer? Neurogeneticist Dr Azlina Ahmad Annuar is back for her Brain Waves series to help us understand what these cells are doing and whether we should be alarmed, and joining her is pharmacologist Prof Dr Wong Pooi Fong.
