Description:
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.
