Fatty acids are essential for cell function, but their accumulation can be toxic. Fatty acid toxicity is an important yet poorly characterized feature of several neurodegenerative disorders. During oxidative stress neurons release fatty acids that are then taken up and stored in glial lipid droplets. I will discuss various mechanisms and functional consequences of neuronal fatty acid release.
