Effects of Noncompetitive NMDA Receptor Blockade on Anterior Cingulate Cerebral Blood Flow in Volunteers with Schizophrenia


Schizophrenia may be related to dysfunctional glutamatergic activity, specifically hypofunction of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR). In addition, it has been proposed that NMDAR hypofunction may paradoxically cause an increase in glutamate release and hypermetabolism in corticolimbic regions. If a state of partial, chronic NMDAR blockade underlies… (More)
