A Glimpse of the Revolution on Glial Cells

During SfN’s first-ever virtual conference, The Other Brain Cells: New Insights Into What Glial Cells Do, 2,500 scientists learned about exciting research from experts leading the revolution in our understanding of the pervasive roles of glial cells in nervous system function. “A neuron-centric view of neural circuitry is inadequate if we are to understand details of brain function in health and disease,” explained Leslie Tolbert, conference organizer and Regents’ Professor in the department of neuroscience at the University of Arizona. “We have to take into account the growing evidence that glial cells are robust, lively, and influential partners with the neurons.” Recent research reveals that glial cells play key roles in every aspect of nervous system function, from development to information processing and circuit plasticity to neurological disorders.
