Glial Ensheathment of the Somatodendritic Compartment Regulates Sensory Neuron Structure and Activity
Sensory neurons perceive environmental cues and are important of organismal survival. Peripheral sensory neurons interact intimately with glial cells. While the function of axonal ensheathment by glia is well studied, less is known about the functional significance of glial interaction with the somatodendritic compartment of neurons.
