Researchers describe their findings about how the Foxg1 gene is involved in the development and differentiation of neurons and glial cells from stem cells.
In a groundbreaking finding, researchers have identified a new sensory organ under the skin that can detect pain as a result of impact or pinpricks. The organ comprises of glial cells with multiple long protrusions which collectively make up the mesh-like organ under the skin.
A new study reveals how glial cells use a previously unknown molecular pathway to control the shape of specific nerve endings.
Glial cells not only control the speed of nerve conduction, but they also influence the precision of signal transduction.
New research demonstrates how developing glia and neural cells help control the growth of blood vessels.
A new study reports that a receptor targeted for treating neurodegenerative diseases also appears to play an important role in supporting the retina.
A new study reports Sirt1 can help glial cells to regenerate from progenitor cells in preterm babies with hypoxia related injuries.
Astrocytes are not uniform, as previously believed, but take distinct molecular forms depending on their location in the cerebral cortex. Astrocytes also organize in layers in similar ways to neurons.
UCSD researchers have developed a single cell sequencing method that can map the cellular origin of a wide variety of neurological and psychiatric disorders.
