Astrocytes: Pharmacology and Function

by Sean Murphy

Editorial Reviews

Interest in the functional roles of astrocytes in the nervous system has grown significantly as these cells are recognized not only as having their own pharmacology but also as releasing neuro- and vaso- active factors. This volume for neuroscientists relates astrocyte pharmacology to cell function. It discusses the pharmacological regulation of specific astrocyte functions, covers functional interactions between these and adjacent central nervous system cell types, examines regional heterogeneity of astrocytes with respect to receptor expression, and compares in vitro and in vivo approaches.
