Glial responses in brain injury and repair

Glial cells represent 50% of neural cells and play important roles in supporting the development and functioning of the healthy brain. They are therefore interesting therapeutic targets for CNS repair following injury and disease. In this talk we highlight the rodent models we are using to explore these ideas, and present data on neuroepithelial cells, astrocytes, oligodendrocytes and microglia highlighting the potential of glial cells as targets for stimulating repair in the brain.
