  • Reexamining Glial Function In the last 20 years glial cells have been elevated from being considered as passive elements during neuronal transmission. By eliciting astroglial calcium rises, so-called gliotransmitters such as glutamate, ATP, or d-serine can be released and the activity of neighboring neurons modulated. However, this emerging picture has been challenged. Agulhon et al. (p. 1250; see the Perspective by Kirchhoff) reexamined these questions using two previously characterized mouse… CONTINUE READING
