Glial Regulation of the Neuronal Connectome through Local and Long-Distant Communication

  title={Glial Regulation of the Neuronal Connectome through Local and Long-Distant Communication},
  author={R. Douglas Fields and Dong ho Woo and Peter J. Basser},
If "the connectome" represents a complete map of anatomical and functional connectivity in the brain, it should also include glia. Glia define and regulate both the brain's anatomical and functional connectivity over a broad range of length scales, spanning the whole brain to subcellular domains of synaptic interactions. This Perspective article examines glial interactions with the neuronal connectome (including long-range networks, local circuits, and individual synaptic connections) and… CONTINUE READING
