INTRODUCTION The brain glutamate neurotransmitter system and its NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) receptors in the nucleus accumbens play an important role in the incidence of sensitivity and addiction. The present study examined the inhibitory effect of glutamate NMDA receptors in the nucleus accumbens in response to chronic stress. METHODS After the(More)
Objective: In the present study, we examined the effects of memantine administration within the nucleus accumbens on the alterations in brain and adrenal volumes and weight ratios induced by stress from electric foot shock. Methods: A group of mice received various doses of memantine (0.1, 0.5 and 1 mg/kg) prior to induction of stress. Another group(More)
