the time to study the roles of er distribution in presynaptic terminals is opportune: New hsp-associated genes encoding er proteins are being identified continuously in human patients; Studies in non-neuronal cells identified several hsp-gene-encoded proteins as er-shaping proteins - to date these have not been examined in synapses; There is increasing data about the nature and roles of contact sites between er and other cellular structures, Whose functions are required at synapses.
A major finding of the last decade in pain research is that non-neuronal cells play a very active role in the development of sensory abnormalities.

This spectral component associated and related to the material, corpuscular one (the neuronal and non-neuronal structures of the brain) must be, at least, as important as the corpuscular part, which is structured and was studied in the last hundred years.

To test the theory, Horvath and his team selectively knocked out leptin receptors in the adult non-neuronal glial cells of mice.
GluRs are the predominant excitatory neurotransmitter receptors in the mammalian brain located primarily on the membranes of neuronal cells however recent findings have demonstrated expression of functional GluRs in non-neuronal peripheral cells such as skin, placenta, and colon.
