Neuroglia

HideShow resource information
Ependymal cells
Line ventricles and central canal. Assist in producing, circulating and monitoring cerebrospinal fluid.
1 of 6
Astrocytes
Maintain blood-brain barrier; provide structural support; regulate ion, nutrient and dissolved gas concentrations; absorb and recycle neurotransmitters; form scar tissue after injury
2 of 6
Oligodendrocytes
Myelinate CNS axons; provide structural framework
3 of 6
Microgilia
Remove cell debris, wastes and pathogens by phagocytosis
4 of 6
Satellite cells
Surround neuron cell bodies in ganglia; regulate O2. CO2, nutrient and neurotransmitter levels aroun neurons in ganglia
5 of 6
Schwann cells
Surround all axons in PNS; responsible for myelination of peripheral axons; participate in repair process after injury
