The characteristics of electrical coupling between astrocytes and between oligodendrocytes were analyzed in cell cultures derived from rodent central nervous system. Experiments were carried out by impaling one member of a glial pair with separate voltage recording and current passing electrodes (cell 1) and the other cell, a measured distance from the first, with a voltage-recording electrode (cell 2). Astrocyte pairs within 300 microns of one another were always coupled. The coupling ratio… CONTINUE READING
