Three decades of neuroscience glutamate receptor channels free
Three Decades of Neuroscience on Glutamate Receptor Channels John Edward Porter Neuroscience Research Center, NIH Campus December 7, 2015 AGENDA Monday, December 7, 2015 9: 30 a. m. Welcome and Opening Remarks Kenton Swartz, Ph. D. , Senior Investigator, Molecular Physiology and Biophysics Section,
Because glutamate receptors are cationselective, channel opening leads to membrane depolarization under physiological conditions. Except when a neuron is voltage clamped (with good space clamp) during the experiment, glutamate receptor activation may stimulate opening of voltagegated channels.
(CIT): Dr. Howe's research on the glutamate receptor ion channels which mediate synaptic transmission in the brain uses biophysical approaches to explore their mechanism of action. Most recently he has worked on how TARPS modulate AMPA receptor function and will present new work on a second family of modulatory proteins for kainate receptors.

Glutamate is the principal excitatory neurotransmitter in the brain. Glutamate activates cationselective receptor channels carried by nearly every neuron and by glial cells14.
