Glia-Promoting Factors and the Control of Oligodendroglial Growth During Brain Development and Regeneration
The central nervous system (CNS) relies upon complex interactions among glial cells to regulate metabolic functions and to direct structural organization of neural networks. The contributions that astroglia, oligodendroglia, and microglia make to brain function are incompletely understood and include the support of tissue structure, production of myelin membrane, or mediation of inflammatory responses. One way to explore these cellular functions is to determine when and how glia are activated.
