Glia and Synaptic Transmission

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This chapter reviews recent evidence defining glial-neuronal interactions at the tripartite synapse. Topics covered include structure of the tripartite synapse, neuronal activation of glial cells, glial modulation of synaptic transmission, and indirect mechanisms of glial modulation of synaptic transmission.
