Non-neuronal cells, information processing, and neuropsychiatric syndromes.
Sfera A, Osorio C.
We believe that the neurovascular unit (NVU) can be envisioned as the structural and functional assembly of the brain where cellular and the extracellular macromolecules join their properties to engender global molecular networks that enable human information processing. Furthermore, we believe that the concept of NVU may facilitate understanding of neuropsychiatric conditions.
