By Vijay Sarthy,Harris Ripps

The human mind comprises greater than a thousand million neurons which interconnect to shape networks that approach, shop, and remember sensory details. those neuronal actions are supported by way of a gaggle of accent mind cells coll- tively referred to as neuroglia. unusually, glial cells are ten occasions extra - merous than neurons, and occupy greater than part the mind quantity (Hydén, 1961). even though lengthy thought of a passive, albeit valuable, section of the frightened procedure, many attention-grabbing and strange practical homes of glial cells are just now being dropped at gentle. hence, the prestige of those mobile parts is coming near near parity with nerve cells as a subject matter for experimental learn. The time period glia (or glue) turns out this present day to be a misnomer in view of the varied features attributed to glial cells. Experimental reviews within the final 3 a long time have essentially tested that the habit of glial cells is much from passive, and they are a minimum of as advanced as neurons with reference to their membrane houses. additionally, glial cells are of significance in sign processing, mobile metabolism, fearful process improvement, and the pathophysiology of neurological illnesses. The Müller mobilephone of the ver- brate retina presents a well suited instance of an adjunct phone that indicates good points illustrating each point of the complicated habit now linked to glial cells.
