For many years, astrocytes and oligodendrocytes were considered the inert partners of neurons in the central nervous system (CNS), but several recent studies have dramatically challenged this view. Glial cells express a large number of different voltage‐ and ligand‐gated ion channels (Verkhratsky and Steinhäuser. Brain Res Rev 32:380–412, 2000 ) as well as G‐protein‐coupled receptors (Verkhratsky et al. Physiol Rev 78:99–141, 1998 )—machinery necessary to sense and respond to neuronal activity… Expand
