Endocannabinoids regulate the activity of astrocytic hemichannels and the microglial response against an injury: In vivo studies.

“Anandamide (AEA) is an endocannabinoid (EC) that modulates multiple functions in the CNS and that is released in areas of injury, exerting putative neuroprotective actions.

In the present study, we have used intravital microscopy to analyze the role of the EC system in the glial response against an acute insult…

In summary, these findings demonstrate that AEA modifies glial functions by promoting an enhanced pro-inflammatory glial response in the brain.”
