AMPA receptors play a critical role in synaptic plasticity and brain development. Here we show that Ca(2+) uptake in response to AMPA receptor activation decreases dramatically during maturation in chicken brain microslices without a change in tissue AMPA receptor content. We found that during maturation the relative concentration of GluR2 subunits… CONTINUE READING
