Differential involvement of glutamate receptors in neuronal responses of the cerebral cortex

Abstract:

I studied how glutamate receptor-mediated responses, spatial arrangements, intrinsic properties and molecular specificity of cells serve cortical functions. I tested whether two somatosensory submodalities in the primary somatosensory (SI) cortex can be distinguished by glutamate receptor involvement in vivo. Low-threshold responses evoked by innocuous stimuli had a short-duration and long-duration component. The short-duration responses were mostly mediated by AMPA/kainate receptors and ...
