Control of hippocampal synaptic transmission and plasticity by wakefulnessdependent elevation of astrocyte-derived adenosine.

Schmitt, Lukas.

Abstract: Sleep is a highly conserved behavior which is critically important to the function of the nervous system and in particular to consolidation of declarative memory. Recent evidence has suggested that astrocytes, the major glial support cell within the brain, play a key role in maintaining sleep homeostasis by governing the level of adenosine which acts in extracellular space to regulate sy... read more
