The NMDA Receptor


Oxford University Press

In several brain regions, N-methyl-d-aspartate (NMDA) receptors are specially effective during the developmental period, where they appear to play important roles in the formation and stabilization of developing synapses. The early activation of NMDA receptors could also provide signals which promote neuronal survival, growth, and differentiation. This chapter attempts to review this area of NMDA receptor research and to place the information into a chronological framework.

Keywords:   neural development, NMDA receptors, neuronal survival, synapses, neuronal growth, neuronal differentiation
