Review of Book: The triparite synapse: Glia in synaptic transmission

Research output: Other contribution

Abstract

Glial cells are the most numerous cells in the brain, with well-established roles in providing structural, metabolic and trophic support to neurons. The Tripartite Synapse: Glia in Synaptic Transmission is an up-to-date, insightful and accessible overview of a new wave of discovery concerning the less widely appreciated dynamic and integrative activities of glial cells and their potential role in information processing. In the book, glial cells are portrayed as signalling elements that integrate neuronal inputs, exhibit calcium excitability and are able to modulate neighbouring neurons.
