NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) is the selective agonist that binds to NMDA receptors but not to other glutamate receptors. The NMDA receptor (NMDAR) is the predominant molecular device for controlling synaptic plasticity and memory function. The NMDAR is a type of ionotropic glutamate receptor. Activation of NMDA receptors requires binding of glutamate or aspartate (aspartate does not stimulate the receptors as strongly). In addition, NMDARs also require the binding of the co-agonist glycine.

New research suggests care for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is complicated, even in the best cases. While experts explain that the majority of people with post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) recover after early treatment, a new study finds.
Plant Neurobiology Sprouts Anew | The Scientist Magazine®. About systems of communication within plants similar to neural transmission in animals. Maybe not so surprising given that animals and plants co-evolved. Concepts such as glutamate receptors and neurotransmitters in both animals and plants are very intriguing.
