In models of early stage Parkinson's disease (PD), motor deficits are accompanied by excessive activation of striatal glutamate receptors. Metabotropic glutamate group I receptors (mGluR I) play an important but not well-understood role in PD progression. In mouse brain slices, bath application of the mGluR I agonist (RS)-DHPG (3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine,(More)
In animal models of early Parkinson's disease (PD), motor deficits are accompanied by excessive striatal glutamate release. Blockade of group I metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs), endocannabinoid degradation and nitric oxide (NO) synthesis combats PD symptoms. Activation of group I mGluRs with the specific agonist 3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine (DHPG)(More)
