Hippocampal astrocytes represent navigation space

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Hippocampal place cells, which display location-specific activity, are known to encode spatial information. A recent study in PLOS Biology by Curreli and colleagues shows that hippocampal astrocytes are implicated in encoding complementary spatial information, suggesting the existence of glial place cells.
