Abstract:
Are neurons solely responsible for determining behavioral output, or can other brain cells modulate behavior? In this issue of Cell, Nagai et al. demonstrate that striatal astrocytes, through GABAB receptor signaling, regulate behaviors including hyperactivity and attention by inducing new synapse formation between neurons.
