Biology of the NMDA Receptor
by Antonius M Van Dongen
Publisher: CRC Press 2009
This book covers many aspects of the biology of NMDARs: their role in controlling structure and function of synapses and neurons during early development; how overstimulation of NMDARs results in excitotoxicity and contributes to several progressive brain disorders, including Huntington’s disease; the newly discovered and intriguing interactions of NMDARs and dopamine receptors that mediate reward in the central nervous system.

Neurochemistry studies the role of chemicals that build the nervous system, it explores the function of neurons in health and disease, it discovers aspects of cell metabolism and reveals how degenerative processes are at work in the nervous system.
