• Glutamate receptor affects the development of brain cells after birth

    3 days ago - By ScienceDaily

    Whenever we learn or save information, the so-called ionotropic glutamate receptors play a crucial role in the brain. A subgroup of glutamate receptors are kainate receptors. They had been traditionally known for aiding the regulation of neuronal networks. Now, researchers have discovered that they also affect the way nerve cells develop immediately after birth.
