Glutamatergic neural transmission in the nucleus tractus solitarius: N-methyl-D-aspartate receptors.

Abstract

1. The nucleus tractus solitarius (NTS) is the first central site where the reflex control of autonomic, including baroreceptor, reflex function is coordinated. Autonomic signals are transmitted from the first-order visceral afferent fibres to second-order NTS neurons by L-glutamate. It is well established that activation of the alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5… (More)
