The search for novel, less invasive therapeutic strategies to treat neurodegenerative diseases has stimulated scientists to investigate the mechanisms involved in preconditioning. Preconditioning has been report to occur in many organs and tissues. In the brain, the modulation of glutamatergic transmission is an important and promising target to the use of effective neuroprotective agents. The glutamatergic excitotoxicity is a factor common to neurodegenerative diseases and acute events such as… CONTINUE READING
