Functional properties of extrasynaptic AMPA and NMDA receptors during postnatal hippocampal neurogenesis.

Abstract

In the mammalian hippocampus, new granule cells are continuously generated throughout life. Although it is well known that they rapidly form several thousand new glutamatergic synapses, the underlying mechanisms are not well understood. As extrasynaptic NMDA receptors are believed to support the generation of new spines, we have studied the functional… (More)
