This review covers normal expression of the NMDA receptor in the fetus and newborn, and then the response of the NMDA receptors within the central nervous system (CNS) during early development, to noxious stimuli. In the research setting, hypoxia is a commonly studied noxious stimulus that has been studied in a variety of contexts, including isolated hypoxia, or hypoxia combined with ischemia or hypercapnia, and delivered in single or repeated doses (intermittent stimuli). We review differences… CONTINUE READING
