Researchers have developed a comprehensive "toolbox" to establish that the mobility of receptors exists in intact brain tissue, and this mobility is critical for certain types of memory.
Researchers reveal the role GLAST plays in establishing and maintaining neural wiring of Purkinje cells.
Researchers have revealed the 3D structure of NMDA receptor molecules that are critical for brain health. NMDA receptors are believed to contribute to a range of neurological and psychiatric disorders, including schizophrenia, depression, stroke, and Alzheimer's disease. The new model could help with the development of novel treatments for neuropsychiatric disorders.
A new study reveals a psychostimulant prescribed for ADHD increases glutamate in the brains of healthy people, resulting in more positive emotions.
