This section incorporates all aspects of the biophysical analysis of signaling, interaction networks and gene regulatory networks including: enzymatic networks, intercellular signalling, neurobiology and neuronal signaling.
Synaptic neuron-astrocyte communication is supported by an order of magnitude analysis of inositol tris-phosphate diffusion at the nanoscale in a model of peri-synaptic astrocyte projection
Astrocytes were conceived for decades only as supporting cells of the brain. However, the observation of Ca2+ waves in astrocyte synctitia, their neurotransmitter receptor expression and gliotransmitter secret...
