|Glial cells are also known as||neuroglia which means "glue"|
|what are some of the functions of glial cells?||For support. Supply nutrients and oxygen to neurons. Insulation. Kill pathogens and remove dead neurons|
|Do neuroglia conduct nerve impulses?||Neuroglia do not generate nerve impulses|
|Can glial cells regenerate if injured?||YES, glial cells can regenerate if injured unlike neurons|
|what are glial cells||glial are specialized cells that nourish and support neurons|
|what are satellite glial||glial cell that provide nutrients for neurons in the PNS|
|what are astrocytes cells||a neuroglial cells in the shape of a star in the brain|
|what are radial glial||this are glial cells that act as a bridge for developing neurons as they move to their end destination|
|what are schwann cells||the only glial located in the PNS. myelination of axons|
|what are microglia||cells in the brain that function as phagocytes to remove debris left by dead or degenerating neurons and glial cells|
|what are oligodendroglia||glia that provide layers of membrane that insulate axons in the brain and spinal cord, able to contribute myelin to several axons|
|what are basal ganglia||basal ganglia is a structure of the brain that plays a role in the initiation of movements.|
|what are radial glia||direct neurons during development|
|what are the four types of CNS neuroglia cells?||Astrocytes, Ependymal cells, microglial cells, Oligodendrocytes|
|Where does Astrocytes get their name from?||their name come from the fact that they look like a star|
|Where are Astrocytes mostly found?||Astrocytes are mostly found in the brain|
|The Astrocytes cell body sites between the _______ and _____ of the brain||between the blood capillary and neurons of the brain|
|What are the function of Astrocytes?||They function as the blood brain barrier|
|How do Astrocytes behave as blood brain barriers?,||They regulate the flow of ions, sugars and oxygen in and out of neurons. Also regulate waste elimination|
|When neurons in the brain are injured they are replaced with scar tissue made up of ______||Astrocytes in a process called gliosis|
|what is the function of oligodendrocytes?||Oligodendrocytes are responsible for myelination of axons within the CNS|
|where are Oligodendrocytes found?||Oligodendrocytes are found in the nervous system of invertebrates and vertebrates. Also in rows between axons|
|Oligodendrocytes are subdivided into ________ and _______||they are subdivided into interfascicular and perineuronal types|
|How can Oligodendrocytes be diferenciated from astrocytes?||Oligodendrocytes have a greater density of cytoplasm and nuclear, large numbers of microtubles|
|what kind of cells are Ependymal cells?||They are cells that line the cerebral spinal fluid containing cavities of the brain|
|what are Ependymal cells?||They are neuroglia cells that form epithelial lining of ventricles in the brain and spinal cord|
|what is the function of satellite cells?||They regulate the oxygen, carbon dioxide, and nutrients around neurons in ganglia|
|what is the function of schwann cells?||They help in the repair process after injury. Also responsible for myelination of peripheral axons|
|where are schwann cells found?||They surround axons in the PNS|
|Schwann cells create?,||nodes of ranvier|
|what is the function of nodes of ranvier?||they allow electrical impulses to jump from one node to another faster than unmyelinated neuron|
|what is the function of microglia?||They perform housekeeping functions.They remove cell debris. Remove pathogens and phagocytosis. Remove dead cellular materials and bacteria|
|What kind of cells are Microglia?||they are phagocytic cells similar to macrophages|
|Microglia cells are also known as?||mesoglia|
|where do microglia originate from?||They originate from the bone marrow and enter the CNS through the blood|
|when are microglia activates?||Microglia are present in small numbers, but proliferate and activate if there is a disease or injury|
