Introduction: The brain glutamate system plays a central role in response to stress. This study examines the effect of memantine (a NMDA glutamate receptor antagonist) on stress from plantar electrical shock in male NMRI mice (Pasture Institute, Iran), weighing 25-30 g (n=6/group). Methods: The nucleus accumbens was bilaterally cannulated in a group of(More)

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)
