Encore: The Glial Cells (Online Only)

June 20, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Free
Brain Basics

“Glia” means “glue” and refers to all the cells in your brain that are not neurons. (There are, in fact, just as many glial cells in the brain as there are neurons.)

For decades glial cells were the under-appreciated cells of the nervous system, thought to do little more than take up space and provide a little structural support. In reality, they play a variety of critical roles, from food suppliers to insulators to cleaners.

In this session, we will explore the wide variety of glial cells, and what they do to keep our brains happy and healthy.

Each session includes time for questions. All sessions are free. I look forward to seeing you!
