Abstract

Increasing evidence suggests that glial cells are endowed with the ability to externalize their activity to the extracellular space and to neurons. Since the same activity is influenced by the extracellular ionic concentrations and the neurotransmitters released by neurons, it is suggested that neurons and glia entertain a continuous exchange of information. This behavior might have a particular significance during cortical oscillations. In this study we analyzed the time and voltage relationships within simultaneously recorded neuron-glia pairs during normal states characterized by a slow (+ contributes to the abridged duration of the paroxysmal depolarization.
