Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


The highly ramified processes of astrocytes enable cellular interactions and extracellular homeostasis. In this issue of Neuron, Stork etal. (2014) report that extension and elaboration of astrocyte processes in Drosophila is controlled by the release of FGF by neurons.
