Magnesium (Mg2+) is one of the most abundant cations found in the body. In the central nervous system, Mg2+ plays an important role in the function of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA)-type glutamate receptors, which are centrally involved in memory processing. Despite the relatively large concentration of Mg2+ in the CNS, little is known about the behavioral(More)
The consequences of broad-scale alterations in magnesium (Mg2+) levels on learning and memory are poorly understood. We have recently demonstrated that adult male mice maintained on an Mg2+-deficient diet exhibit reduced conditional freezing behavior. The purpose of the present study was to determine if the detrimental effect of Mg2+ deficiency in mice(More)
