Abstract

T the last century, most neurophysiologists believed synaptic transmission in the brain was mediated solely by neurons. Glial cells, the most numerous cells in the brain, were primarily seen as providing support but not as actively participating in rapid neural signaling. Several recent findings indicate that this restrictive view of neural circuitry may be… (More)
