Аннотация

Until recently, neuroscientists thought glial cells did little more than hold your brain together. But in the past few years, theyve discovered that glial cells are extraordinarily important. In fact, they may hold the key to understanding intelligence, treating psychiatric disorders and brain injuries and perhaps even curing fatal conditions like Alzheimers, Parkinsons, and Lou Gehrigs Disease. In The Root of Thought, leading neuroscientist Dr. Andrew Koob reveals what weve learned about these remarkable cells, from their unexpected role in information storage to their function as adult stem cells that can keep your brain growing and adapting longer than scientists ever imagined possible. Ranging from fruit flies to Einstein, Koob reveals the surprising correlation between intelligence and the brains percentage of glial cells - and why these cells unique wavelike communications may be especially conducive to the fluid information processing human beings depend upon. Youll learn how crucial glial cells grow and develop... why almost all brain tumors are comprised of glial cells and the potential implications for treatment... even the apparent role of glial cells in your every thought and dream!
