PN 6550 - Neuron-Glia Biology and Disease

Credit Hour(s): 3
The nervous system is comprised of two primary cell types, neurons and glial cells. The glial cells, which can be divided into several types (e.g. astrocyte, microglia, oligodendrocyte, Schwann cell), support neurons structurally and functionally, and neurons regulate glial cell behavior. This course focuses on how these cells communicate with each other to perform important tasks in the nervous system.
