Glio-neuronal relationships consist largely of a unified change in the intensity of energy and plasticity of the glia and neurons. Under conditions of activation, neurons display an increase in the activity of oxidation-reduction enzymes cytochrome oxidase, succinic dehydrogenase and RNA, while the glia undergo contrary changes. Under inhibitory conditions, as demonstrated by Hyden, neurons display opposite characteristics, i.e., the energy level, and perhaps even the plasticity potential, of the glio-neuronal complex is increased. The morphological analysis of glio-neuronal relationships is especially significant in view of the concept of the protective role of inhibition. The research investigates the reasons for the activation of neuroglial cells following the action of weak, non-specific, alterating agents.
