A distinguished panel of internationally recognized neuroscientists comprehensively review the involvement of and changes in glial cells both during the normal aging process and in the major disorders of old age. Topics range from the cellular and molecular changes that occur with aging-especially aging-associated activation of astrocytes and microglia and its relation to neuronal injury and repair-to neuron-glia intercommunication. The contributors show how glial signals may be modulated by hormones, growth factors, neurotransmitters, intracellular metabolism, and intercellular exchanges, as well as by aging of the blood-brain barrier.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Foreword by Paola S. Timiras, md, phd, University of California at Berkeley, Berkeley, CA

Overall, this carefully edited book organized its contents with a shrewd mind to bring out importance of glial cell function in the CNS vis-a-vis its functional unit, the neurons...This book with helpful diagrams and illustrations, and with excellent coverage of literature is not only useful for the beginners in neuroscience, but is an excellent reference material for gerontologists and researchers in neurological disorders. - Journal of Chemical Neuroanatomy
