Glial Neurobiology A Textbook – 1st edition
Glial cells are the most numerous cells in the human brain butfor many years have attracted little scientific attention.Neurophysiologists concentrated their research efforts instead, onneurones and neuronal networks because it was thought that theywere the key elements responsible for higher brain function. Recentadvances, however, indicate this isn’t exactly the case. Notonly are astroglial cells the stem elements from which neurones areborn, but they also control the development, functional activityand death of neuronal circuits. These ground-breaking developmentshave revolutionized our understanding of the human brain and thecomplex interrelationship of glial and neuronal networks in healthand disease.
