The oligodendrocytes form and maintain the myelin sheaths surrounding axons. 3). Oligodendrocytes are also involved in active remyelination that occurs in response to conditions when there is demyelination such as in multiple sclerosis. Microglial cells are found both in grey and white matter. They are small in comparison with astrocytes, have elongated nuclei and wavy processes with spine-like projections. Within the cerebral cortex about 10% of glial cells are microglial. Although they are generally inactive in the normal adult brain, they have a role in responding to tissue damage particularly due to inﬂammation or neurodegeneration.
Most neurons communicate with each other by the release of speciﬁc signalling molecules, called neurotransmitters, at synapses. , 1991). More than 50 neuroactive peptides have been found to be pharmacologically active. In the brain, glutamate is the major excitatory neurotransmitter and GABA the major inhibitory transmitter (Parent, 1996). The molecular dissection of receptor proteins reveals many subtypes, thus oﬀering the possibility of more speciﬁc therapeutic compounds to treat those disorders where there are demonstrable neurotransmitter deﬁcits such 26 CLINICAL NEUROPSYCHOLOGY as the depletion of nicotinic acetylcholine receptors, among others, in Alzheimer’s disease.
Although many pathways and circuits have been identiﬁed, especially those of the senses such as vision and olfaction, and motor pathways, the connections linking those parts of the brain involved with higher cognitive functions are relatively poorly characterized, but are the subject of continuing investigation. Our understanding of the structure and function of the brain has been facilitated by the application of an ever-widening range of tools including histology, immunohistochemistry, tract tracing methods, methods for structural and functional neuroimaging as well as clinical–pathological studies.
