  • Abstract l - and d -glutamate, l - and d -aspartate, l - and d -cysteate, l -cysteine sulphinate, and to a considerably lesser extent (if at all), N-acetyl- l -aspartate, excite lateral geniculo-cortical relay cells. 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) blocks the spontaneous and synaptic firing of lateral geniculate nucleus (LGN) neurones evoked by photic stimulation in concentrations that have little or no effect on the actions of these excitatory amino acids. If this effect of 5-HT reflects… CONTINUE READING
