Two kinds of cells are found in the brain: neurons and glial cells (or glia). Formerly thought to provide little more than metabolic and structural support for neurons, glia have gained traction in research with the growing recognition that neuron-neuron communication is not only regulated but also defined by them. The 9th annual 'Glial-neuronal Interactions in Health and Disease' symposium will take place at the University of California, Riverside on Friday, Jan. 8, 2016.
Research presentations on 'totes' and endangered languages, panels on the role of linguistics in education and the law, and two days of meetings on Capitol Hill are among the highlights of the upcoming Annual Meeting of the Linguistic Society of America (LSA), to be held in Washington, D.C., from Jan. 7-10, 2016.
