NMDA receptors (NMDARs) form glutamate-gated ion channels widely expressed in the central nervous system and highly permeable to calcium ions. NMDARs have always attracted much attention because of their central implications in numerous physiological and pathological processes including synaptic plasticity and excitotoxicity. Ever since the discovery of… CONTINUE READING
