Slow chemical transmission between dorsal root ganglion neuron somata
European Journal of Neuroscience, 08/09/2012
Rozanski GM et al. – The authors conclude that the two neuronal somata in the neuron–glial cell–neuron trimers (NGlNs) can communicate by chemical transmission, which may involve a transglial, bi–synaptic pathway. This novel soma–to–soma transmission reflects a novel form of processing that may play a role in sensory disorders in the dorsal root ganglia (DRG) and interneuron communication in the central nervous system.
