High-Yield Neuroanatomy (High-Yield Series) Fifth Edition 5e PDF

Macroglia consist of astrocytes and oligodendrocytes.

Astrocytes perform the following functions:Project foot processes that envelop the basement membrane of capillaries, neurons, and synapses. Form the external and internal glial-limiting membranes of the CNS.Play a role in the metabolism of certain neurotransmitters (e.g., γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), serotonin, glutamate).

d. Buffer the potassium concentration of the extracellular space.Form glial scars in damaged areas of the brain (i.e., astrogliosis).Contain glial fibrillary acidic protein (GFAP), which is a marker for astrocytes.Contain glutamine synthetase, another biochemical marker for astrocytes.
h. May be identified with monoclonal antibodies.2. Oligodendrocytes—the myelin-forming cells of the CNS. One oligodendrocyte can myelinate as many as 30 axonal segments.
