Abstract

In the foregoing we have considered the developmental, immunocytochemical, and morphological similarities that support the view that the cell types studied belong to the same class of glia. This class appears to be astrocytic in nature but it obviously comprises more cell types than conventional astrocytes. An attempt to classify these cell types on a common basis has already been made by Friede (1965), but lacking wider developmental and experimental support it has remained at the level of a working hypothesis.
