In that case, induction of Aro-B might be weak if only ER-[alpha] is present in the radial glial cells at this time of zebrafish development or if the ER-[alpha]:ER-[beta] ratio is unfavorable.
In affected areas of the brain, neurons and glial cells contained morbillivirus antigen in the nuclei and cytoplasm.
The book presents all major types of glial pathology; topics include: the morphology and interrelationships between glial cells and neurones in different parts of the nervous system; intra and inter cellular signaling in glial networks; the role of glial cells in synaptic plasticity, neuronal survival and development of nervous system; cellular and molecular mechanisms of metabolic neuronal-glial interactions; and the role of glia in nervous system pathology.
Glial cells support nerve cells in the spinal cord and form scar tissue in response to injury.
The translocator protein acts as a marker for the activity of glial cells.
He says glial cells communicate with neurons and control neuronal activity by regulating a neurotransmitter (signaling chemical) called glutamate.
Glial cells are the most numerous cells in the human brain, but for many years, they have attracted little scientific attention.
Glial cells, which serve as the brain's innate immune system, are the primary sources of cytokines in the central nervous system.

PITTSBURGH -- Glial cells historically have been relegated to the role of supporting players in the central nervous system--a kind of passive "mind glue.
When glial cells are lost, the support system for neurons is affected, including regulation of the immediate environment of the neurons, and other functions that keep them healthy and working normally.
In the study, xCELLigence System's recording of CI values allowed monitoring of primary cortical neuronal culture conditions, including plating, removal of glial cells, compound administration and cell death profiling.
