The overactivity of subthalamopallidal and corticostriatal glutamatergic neurons observed in Parkinson's disease (PD) suggests that antagonists of glutamate receptor could be used to alleviate the motor symptoms of the disease. In this study, we analysed two features of the striatopallidal complex: (1) the distribution of alpha-amino-3 hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxasol-propionate (AMPA) and kainate receptors and their corresponding mRNA by immunohistochemistry and in situ hybridisation and (2) the… CONTINUE READING
