Glial cells as an important proliferation matrix in neural communication

Yep.  There is a periodicity displayed by the sun that is identical in
sequence and temporal parameters to a endogeneous rhythm exhibited by glial
cells.  Both have similar rise times and last virtually 3-5 min.   These
cells have been considered to be one of the major correlates for the
emergence of infraslow potentials within the brain (although the literature
often focuses on neurons mediating such transmission, impairing glial cells
interfere substantial with this rhythm).  This peridocity is one of the most
common one found within the body besides those mediated by neuronal-based
communications.  It might be by accident but you never know.
