Research in the Newman laboratory focuses on the physiology of glial cells and on interactions between glia, neurons, and blood vessels in the central nervous system. Glia have traditionally been viewed as passive, housekeeper cells in the brain. This view has been overturned in recent years as studies have demonstrated that glial cells have many essential functions in the CNS and may actively participate in information processing. MSI data analysis resources are used to process experimental data.
