  1. 1. Plasticity and variation of synaptic responses in hippocampus. Role of AMPA and NMDA receptors

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Yin-Ping Niu; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2002]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; learning and memory; synaptic plasticity; hippocampus; synapse; AMPA receptor; NMDA receptor; LTP; LTD; CV; TFS;

    Abstract : It is generally believed that synaptic plasticity in the central nervous system may underlie learning and memory as well as neuronal development. The most wellstudied examples of such synaptic plasticity are long-term potentiation (LTP) andlong-term depression (LTD). READ MORE

  2. 2. Developmental plasticity of the glutamate synapse: Roles of low frequency stimulation, hebbian induction and the NMDA receptor

    University dissertation from Göteborg

    Author : Joakim Strandberg; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; AMPA receptor; Development; Glutamate; Hippocampus; Long-term depression; Long-term potentiation; NMDA receptor; Synaptic depression;

    Abstract : The glutamate synapse is by far the most common synapse in the brain and acts via postsynaptic AMPA, NMDA and mGlu receptors. During brain development there is a continuous production of these synapses where those partaking in activity resulting in neuronal activity are subsequently selected to establish an appropriate functional pattern of synaptic connectivity while those that do not are elimimated.

  3. 3. Revealing Secrets of Synaptic Protein Interactions A Biosensor based Strategy

    University dissertation from Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Author : Christian Seeger; Uppsala universitet.; [2014]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Surface plasmon resonance; biosensor; AMPA receptor; GABAA receptor; ligand-gated ion channel; A-kinase anchoring protein; caldendrin; calmodulin; HIV; fragment based drug discovery; Biokemi; Biochemistry; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : Protein interactions are the basis of synaptic function, and studying these interactions on a molecular level is crucial for understanding basic brain function, as well as mechanisms underlying neurological disorders. In this thesis, kinetic and mechanistic characterization of synaptic protein interactions was performed by using surface plasmon resonance biosensor technology. READ MORE

  4. 4. Beyond AMPA and NMDA: Slow synaptic mGlu/TRPC currents Implications for dendritic integration

    University dissertation from Stockholm : KTH

    Author : Marcus Petersson; KTH.; [2010]
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; transient receptor potential; TRP; metabotropic glutamate receptor; mGlu1 5; dendritic integration; synaptic activation; temporal summation; low-frequency; entorhinal cortex; mathematical model; computational neuroscience; TECHNOLOGY Information technology Computer science; TEKNIKVETENSKAP Informationsteknik Datavetenskap;

    Abstract : In order to understand how the brain functions, under normal as well as pathological conditions, it is important to study the mechanisms underlying information integration. Depending on the nature of an input arriving at a synapse, different strategies may be used by the neuron to integrate and respond to the input. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modulation of AMPA glutamate receptor functions in primary neuronal cultures

    University dissertation from Stockholm : Karolinska Institutet, Department of Clinical Neuroscience

    Author : Gvido Cebers; Karolinska Institutet.; Karolinska Institutet.; [1999]
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; glutamate; AMPA; cerebellar granule cells; cortical cells; cyclothiazide; AP-1; transcription factors; receptor desensitization; Ca2 ; neurotoxicity; 45Ca2 uptake; apoptosis; ischemia; muscarinic; carbachol;

    Abstract : Primary neuronal cultures were used to investigate the properties of AMPA receptors and functional consequences of their activation, as well as AMPA receptor desensitization and possibilities for its modulation. We established the presence and spontaneous functional activity of AMPA receptors in cerebellar granule and cortical cell cultures. READ MORE
