Here are a couple of articles that may be helpful:
1. Wenzel, J., et al., The 
influence of long- term potentiation on the spatial 
relationship between astrocyte processes and potentiated synapses in the 
dentate gyrus neuropil of rat brain. Brain Res., 1991. 560(1-2): 122-131.

2. Le Gal La Salle, G., G. Rougon, and A. Valin, The embryonic form of neural 
cell surface molecule (E-NCAM) in the rat hippocampus and its reexpression on 
glial cells following kainic acid-induced status epilepticus. J. Neurosci., 
1992. 12(3): 872-882.
