Glutamate, aspartate and possibly other excitatory acidic amino acids are thought to be, neurotransmitters at the majority of excitatory synapses in the vertebrate CSN. The synaptic response elicited by excitatory amino acids is mediated by at least four (probably five) different receptor subtypes. These were known as the N-methyl-D-aspartate, quisqualate, kainate and L-AP4 receptor subtypes.
