Changes in the number, type and function of nervous system connections, in the morphology and function of glia and in neuron-glia interactions, are at the basis of vertebrate adjustment to changing environmental and physiological conditions. Collected under “neural plasticity”, these age-dependent changes underlie adaptations apparently as different as the physiological response to dehydration or learning, and its electrophysiological and morphological correlates.
