    Curr Opin Neurobiol 15:542-8. 2005
    ..Thus, glia are active participants in brain function. Many questions remain about the identity of glial-neuronal signals and their significance...

    Stanford University School of Medicine, Department of Neurobiology, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Neuron 71:799-811. 2011
    ..Although these astrocytes strongly promote synapse formation and function, they do not secrete glutamate in response to stimulation...
  4. ncbi request reprint The classical complement cascade mediates CNS synapse elimination
    Beth Stevens
    Department of Neurobiology, Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford, CA 94305, USA
    Cell 131:1164-78. 2007
    ..These findings support a model in which unwanted synapses are tagged by complement for elimination and suggest that complement-mediated synapse elimination may become aberrantly reactivated in neurodegenerative disease...

    Nicola J Allen
    Department of Physiology, University College London, London WC1E 6BT, United Kingdom
    J Neurosci 24:3837-49. 2004
    ..These data show that ischemia releases GABA initially by exocytosis and then by reversal of GAT-1 transporters and that the resulting Cl- influx through GABA(A) receptor channels causes potentially neurotoxic cell swelling...
