Flashcards in CNS Injury: Cellular Responses Deck (18):
What is the major cell type that responds to CNS injury?
What are non-neuronal cells in CNS?
Proliferation capacity of astrocytes?
What type of injury is most commonly associated with red neurons?
ischemia/infarction/blood vessel occlusion
What type of inclusion is associated with herpes infections?
What type of inclusion is associated with rabies?
Ependymal cells have ________ and _______.
cilia and microvilli
What color do dead/dying neurons become?
What type of inclusions are formed in Alzheimer disease?
What type of inclusions are formed in Parkinson Disease?
What is an axonal reaction?
enlargement of the cell body in response to disjunction of the axon, esp near the axon hillock
What are axonal sphernoids?
nonspecific markers of neuronal tissue damage
What is gliosis?
proliferation of astrocytes
When does gliosis commonly occur?
after nervous tissue insult
What type of cell removed damaged tissue?
What are gemistocytic astrocytes?
astrocytes enlarged in response to injury: hypertrophy
These fibers are parts of astrocytes that indicate nonspecific damage
