The functions in the brain are not implemented in a network of specialized areas, but rather through connected neurons (linked floating equilibria). With this thesis, the astrocytes are not in functional parts, but between them. As an astrocyte feeds several neurons, it controls the distribution of nutrients between functional parts. If one neuron consumes a lot, the other supplied neurons have less (at least temporarily). The neurons do and the astrocytes evaluate this energetically. This now in more detail in language german. Actually nothing new, just the familiar puzzles sorted differently.
I can assure you that the above ideas are my property.
