Most neuroprotective drugs have failed in clinical trials because of side‐effects, causing normal brain function to become compromised. A case in point concerns antagonists of the N‐methyl‐D‐aspartate type of glutamate receptor (NMDAR). Glutamate receptors are essential to the normal function of the central nervous system. However, their excessive activation by excitatory amino acids, such as glutamate itself, is thought to contribute to neuronal damage in many neurological disorders ranging… Expand
