GluN2D N-Methyl-d-Aspartate Receptor Subunit Contribution to the Stimulation of Brain Activity and Gamma Oscillations by Ketamine: Implications for Schizophrenia.


The dissociative anesthetic ketamine elicits symptoms of schizophrenia at subanesthetic doses by blocking N-methyl-d-aspartate receptors (NMDARs). This property led to a variety of studies resulting in the now well-supported theory that hypofunction of NMDARs is responsible for many of the symptoms of schizophrenia. However, the roles played by specific… (More)
