Why would Amy or Mayim  Make such a mistake in calling Glia Neurons.  Astrocytes are Glia. And Glia are not "primative"   They are Limbic System. But Not Primative.  Glia diffuse information across the brain...like ripples on a pond...interference patterns.  Neurons are like "bits" On or OFF.  Love me some astrocytes!

ok...lot of views...no response...  I know Glia have been around longer...so yea ..older than neurons.  I see them a different way... I think they have always had a more important role in the diffusion of memory and sense response than we give them credit for.  Because of the "fatty" nature of Glia, they act like a transmitters, much like water.   They communicate like ripples in a pond.  They communicate that information across the brain and influence neurons.  I believe they have evolved along with the rest of the brain...I do not believe that they are a "throw-back".   I believe they are the reason aspects of the brain have evolved.
