Abstract: This Focus Issue of Science Signaling complements the Science Special Issue and highlights glial cell function, development, and disease. This issue draws attention to the molecular mechanisms of drug resistance of a cancer of glial origin, and to signaling between glia and neurons. Although glia may not be excitable, they are clearly an exciting group of cells.
