  • To test a possibility that glutamate (Glu) and aspartate (Asp) are transmitters in the visual cortex and to locate their operating sites in the cortical circuitry, we studied effects of microiontophoretic application of Glu/Asp antagonists on visual responses of cortical neurons in the cat. The antagonists tested were kynurenic acid (KYNA), cis-2,3-piperidine dicarboxylic acid, and gamma-D-glutamylglycine. Among these antagonists, KYNA was most effective in blocking visual responses of cortical… CONTINUE READING
