Recent years have witnessed an increasing interest in neuron-glia communication. This interest stems from the realization that glia participate in cognitive functions and information processing and are involved in many brain disorders and neurodegenerative diseases. An important process in neuron-glia communications is astrocyte encoding of synaptic information transfer-the modulation of intracellular calcium (Ca(2+)) dynamics in astrocytes in response to synaptic activity. Here, we derive and… CONTINUE READING
