Local Ca2+ detection and modulation of synaptic release by astrocytes


Astrocytes communicate with synapses by means of intracellular calcium ([Ca2+]i) elevations, but local calcium dynamics in astrocytic processes have never been thoroughly investigated. By taking advantage of high-resolution two-photon microscopy, we identify the characteristics of local astrocyte calcium activity in the adult mouse hippocampus. Astrocytic… (More)
