A Role for Astrocytes in Nociception, Nucleus Accumbens Physiology, and REM Sleep Regulation.Foley, Jeannine.
Abstract: Astrocytes are non-neuronal cells in the nervous system that elevate their intracellular calcium in response to stimuli. Astrocytes express receptors for neurotransmitters and ensheath pre- and post-synaptic neuronal processes. Abundant evidence suggests astrocytes not only detect activity of the synapse, but also release chemicals, termed gliotransmitters, that influence synaptic streng... read more
