Figure 1: Cultured astrocytes response to OAG stimulation with discrete calcium oscillations. Astrocytes loaded with the calcium indicator Fluo4 show little activity at baseline in a continuous perfusion of NHS. Upon the application of OAG (green box), discreet oscillations can be observed as uncoordinated increases in Fluo4 signal in different regions of the viewing field.
