The glutamate system includes presynaptic glutamatergic terminals, complex post-synaptic densities found on diverse types of neurons expressing glutamate receptors, as well as glutamate transporters and enzymes that facilitate the glutamate/glutamine cycle. Abnormalities of this system have been implicated in schizophrenia based on an accumulating body of(More)
Milrod (2007) identifies persistent emptiness in agoraphobic patients whose symptoms of anxiety and avoidance have remitted. To this important identification, a number of critical considerations may be raised regarding the meanings of emptiness in the psychoanalytic clinic. Milrod's admonishment to distinguish between an emptiness that indicates a deficit(More)
Beta-Bungarotoxin (beta-BuTX) and notexin are phospholipase A2 (PLA2) neurotoxins which cause an irreversible blockade of neurotransmitter release through specific and potent effects at the presynaptic nerve terminal; however, their mechanism of action is uncertain. We examined the effects of beta-BuTX and notexin on Na+/K+ ATPase activity using(More)
