An astrocyte bridge from synapse to blood flow

Neural activity locally increases cerebral blood flow to deliver oxygen to working neurons. A new paper shows that astrocytes can detect activity at glutamatergic synapses via calcium changes in astrocytic endfeet and directly couple it to blood flow in vitro and in vivo.
