Glial cells: the beauty of the brain

Glial cells, are more than “glue” for the neurons as they were described. In the picture, we observe a glial culture which includes stem cells knowns as oligodendrocyte progenitor cells (OPCs)(green nuclear circles), oligodendrocytes derived from OPCs which branch and form spider nets to wrap myelin around neurons (white and red) and astrocytes (cyan) which are key for brain communication
