Ampa and Kainate Receptors in Cns Injury*


Glutamate receptors are the most common excitatory neurotransmitter receptors in the central nervous system (CNS). Excessive stimulation of glutamate receptors, including receptors of the AMPA and kainate families, is believed to contribute to the neurodegeneration encountered in stroke, CNS trauma, and several degenerative neurologic disorders.
