Memory and the NMDA receptors.


The N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) receptor (NMDAR) is the predominant molecular device for controlling synaptic plasticity and memory function.1 Thus, an understanding of the control and action of the NMDAR at central synapses may provide clues to therapeutic strategies for treating memory disorders. Episodic and spatial memories, which are often compromised… (More)
