neuroglia
Explanation:
neu·rog·lia (n-rog'le-) [ neuro- + -glia ]
the supporting structure of nervous tissue. It consists of a fine web of tissue made up of modified ectodermal elements, in which are enclosed peculiar branched cells known as neuroglial cells or glial cells. The neuroglial cells are of three types: astrocytes and oligodendrocytes (astroglia and oligodendroglia), which appear to play a role in myelin formation, transport of material to neurons, and maintenance of the ionic environment of neurons; and microcytes (microglia), which phagocytize waste products of nerve tissue. Called also glia. See plate accompanying nerve.
