The older neurocentric view of the central nervous system (CNS) has changed radically with the growing understanding of the many essential functions of astrocytes. Advances in our understanding of astrocytes include new observations about their structure, organization, function and supportive actions to other cells. Although the contribution of astrocytes to the process of brain injury has not been clearly defined, it is thought that their ability to provide support to neurons after cerebral… CONTINUE READING
