NEUROSCIENCE PROGRAM SEMINAR SERIES

 

Learning Objectives:
1) Neuronal death during stroke involves a unique ‘metabotropic’ function the the NMDA-type glutamate receptor.
2) Given the importance of NMDA receptors for synaptic plasticity and memory, and their propensity to kill neurons through excitotoxicity, it is surprising that endogenous regulators of neuronal death have not been identified.
3) The Alzheimer’s disease related protein, amyloid beta suppresses metabotropic NMDA receptor excitotoxicity through action at mGluR1/5.
