Editorial Reviews


"Spanish neurologist Pío del Río-Hortega (1882-1945) is credited with discovering microglia, but not oligodendrocytes, another of the four cell types that constitute nerve tissue. At least part of the reason, say Iglesias-Rozas.and Garrosa. may be that his findings were only published in Spanish. They pull together the evidence for his contribution. Among their topics are the bibliographic background, morphological characteristics of the oligodendroglia, textural characteristics of protoplasm in the oligodendrocytes,."--Reference & Research Book News, December 2013
