Researchers have uncovered the molecular structure of three major complexes of glutamate receptors in the hippocampus. The findings shed new light on the mechanisms behind memory and learning in the brain.
According to a new study, postmortem brain tissue from females who suffered from depression had abnormally high expression levels of a number of genes which regulate the glutamate system.
Scientists have now identified a specific dysfunction in neuronal circuits that is caused by autism. The scientists also report about their success in reversing these neuronal changes in mouse models.
