These cells, which cooperate with the neurons, play a major role in the operation of the brain They provide insulation for nerve tissue, metabolical functions, skeletal support and protection with regards to foreign bodies in the event of lesions. They release factors including fibronectin, here shown in yellow, which will favor growth and migration of the neurons of the brain. In green, GFAP (Glial Fibrillary Acidic Protein), a fluorescent market of gial cells. Recent work has shown that some glial cells also play an active role in the transmission of nerve impulses.
