Neuroglia

Helmut Kettenmann and Bruce R. Ransom

Abstract

This book details the basic biology and function of glial cells. It covers the entire field of glial research from the basic molecular and cellular properties of these cells to their involvement in neurological diseases including stroke, Alzheimer's Disease, and multiple sclerosis. This edition includes new chapters on transmitter release by extocytosis from glia, glia derived stem cells, glia synaptic transmission, glia and axon guidance, an entirely new section on mechanisms of glial injury, and several new chapters on the roles of glia in different diseases. It covers the fields of neuroana ... More

Keywords: glial cells, glial research, molecular properties, cellular properties, stroke, Alzheimer's Disease, multiple sclerosis, extocytosis, stem cells, synaptic transmission
