Ion homeostasis in rhythmogenesis : the interplay between neurons and astroglia
Proper function of all excitable cells depends on ion homeostasis. Nowhere is this more critical than in the brain where the extracellular concentration of some ions determines neurons' firing pattern and ability to encode ...
An astrocyte-dependent mechanism for neuronal rhythmogenesis
Communication between neurons rests on their capacity to change their firing pattern to encode different messages. For several vital functions, such as respiration and mastication, neurons need to generate a rhythmic firing ...
