For 30 years physiological techniques have been used to investigate excitatory amino acids as neurotransmitters. In the last ten years progress on the definition of receptor subtypes and the availability of more selective agonists and antagonists has fuelled physiological, neurochemical and histochemical approaches to elucidating the involvement of excitatory amino acids at synaptic sites throughout the vertebrate CNS. Here Max Headley and Sten Grillner assess the advances made in defining the… CONTINUE READING
