It is established that astrocytes are the intimate partner of neurons throughout their lifespan. However, astrocytes play different roles at different stages of the lifespan. During neurogenesis and early development, glial cells provide a scaffold for the correct migration of neurons and growth cones. They provide guidance cues and may also be involved in neuronal proliferation. In the adult, astrocytes maintain neuronal homeostasis and synaptic plasticity. This review discusses some of the… CONTINUE READING
