A new study identifies a brain circuit that controls walking and identifies a new target for treating Parkinson's disease.
Glutamate is first released near the AMPA-type glutamate receptors, then released near the NMDA-type receptors immediately after the first signal to activate the switch for synaptic plasticity.
Researchers say homeostatic synaptic plasticity facilitates Hebbian plasticity, influencing memory formation and learning.
Plumes of glutamate in the brain could explain the onset of migraines with auras, a new study reports.
A new stem cell study could help predict autism and could lead to new drug targets for ASD.
A new study focuses on why exercise may be an important tool in treating depression and other disorders linked to GABA or glutamate deficiencies.
Researchers report our ability to identify and categorize visual information is an active process similar to memory stabilization.
Researchers have discovered how lactate can protect neurons from damage following acute trauma.
A new study reports brain connectivity appears to be dictated by the spatial architecture of neurons, rather than the cell type-specific cues.
Glutamate binds to the subunits of its receptor only in specific patterns. The findings upend previous belief that each subunit binds glutamate independently and points to a new level of complexity in neurotransmission and drug response.
