Different pools of glutamate receptors mediate sensitivity to ambient glutamate in the cochlear nucleus.

Abstract

Ambient glutamate plays an important role in pathological conditions, such as stroke, but its role during normal activity is not clear. In addition, it is not clear how ambient glutamate acts on glutamate receptors with varying affinities or subcellular localizations. To address this, we studied "endbulb of Held" synapses, which are formed by auditory nerve… (More)
