NMDA receptors are essential for neurotransmission and key mediators of synaptic signaling, but they can also trigger deleterious degenerative processes that lead to cell death. Growing evidence suggests that selective blockade of the heterogeneous subunits that comprise the NMDA receptor may enable better control of pharmacotherapies for treating(More)
Reactive gliosis is a process triggered in astrocytes after traumatic injury, yet the exact consequences of gliosis on cellular survival and neural regenerative processes in the injured brain remain only partly understood. One recently discovered feature influencing neuronal growth and differentiation is the physical stiffness of the environment surrounding(More)
