Abstract Glial cells throughout the nervous system are closely associated with synapses. Accompanying these anatomical couplings are intriguing functional interactions, including the capacity of certain glial cells to respond to and modulate neurotransmission. Glial cells can also help establish, maintain, and reconstitute synapses. In this review, we discuss evidence indicating that glial cells make important contributions to synaptic function.
