Astrocytes: Development, Morphology, and Regional Specialization of Astrocytes, Volume 1 provides an overview of the development and diversity of astrocytes in the whole central nervous system and serves as a guide to the members of the astrocyte family.

This volume discusses the phylogenetic and ontogenetic development, the origin, differentiation, and topographical distribution of astrocytes.
