A newly synthesized compound NC-1200 (oxazolidinone) has been shown to have a powerful inhibitory action on the glutamate response at the neuromuscular junction in crayfish where glutamate is thought to be an excitatory neurotransmitter. However, the pharmacological function of NC-1200 in the CNS of mammals remains unknown. We examined the glutamate blocking action of NC-1200 on various glutamate receptors of cat's vestibular neurons. The effects of NC-1200 on secondary vestibular neurons were… Expand
The contribution of N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors to lesion-induced plasticity in the vestibular nucleus
It is suggested that NMDA receptors may induce a form of heterosynaptic LTD in the ipsilateral VNC, which is partly responsible for the extent of the hypoactivity which occurs immediately following UVD, and the severity of the associated vestibular syndrome. Expand
Roles of glutamate receptor subtypes in the development of vestibular compensation after unilateral labyrinthectomy in the guinea pig
It was found that NMDA and non-NMDA receptors play important roles in the development of SN after UL, and that the NMDA receptor contributes to the developmentof ocular motor compensation. Expand
Pharmacology of AMPA/Kainate Receptor Ligands and Their Therapeutic Potential in Neurological and Psychiatric Disorders
Evidence for advantages of AMPA receptor antagonists over N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor antagonists for symptomatic treatment of neurological and psychiatric conditions, and for minimising neuronal loss occurring after acute neurological diseases, are shown in animal models. Expand
