Contents Notes
Comprehensive reference book on the basic biology and function of glial cells. This edition covers the entire field of glial research from the basic molecular and cellular of these cells to their involvement in neurological diseases including stroke, Alzheimer's disease, and multiple sclerosis. It includes new chapters on transmitter release from exocytosis from glia, glia derived stem cells, glia and synaptic transmission, glia and axon guidance, an entirely new section on mechanisms of glial injury, and several new chapters on the roles of glia in different diseases. The new edition was written with both students and experts in mind. It provides a basic introduction to the entire range of glial topics and detailed information with critical assessment of the research literature. Pt.1. Properties of neuroglial cells, morphology and ultrastructure of glial cells -- lineage -- physiological and biochemical properties -- pt. II. Functions of neuroglial cells, myelin -- immune function -- blood brain barrier -- influence on neurons -- development -- pt. III. Disease and neuroglial cells, mechanism of glial injury -- recovery of neural function -- diseases.
