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

    Keywords : 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

  5. 5. NMDA receptors in neurodegeneration : Studies on NMDA receptor subunit expression preceding ischemia-induced delayed nerve cell death

    Author : Olof Bendel; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP;

    Abstract : NMDA receptors are glutamate-gated ion channels that are permeable to Ca2+. NMDA receptors are tetramers formed by a combination of subunits. In the present thesis, we describe the novel NR3B subunit that we cloned in mouse and human. NR3B was found to be expressed in the adult rat and human central nervous system (CNS). READ MORE
