about

This volume critically examines the functional actions of the kainate-type glutamate receptors (KARs). Following on from the larger body of work on the NMDA- and AMPA-type ionotropic glutamate receptors (GluRs), studies with KARs have consistently thrown up exceptions to general rules about synaptic modulation. Contributors herein provide an insight to the idiosyncracies that now almost typify the KAR field. The fascinating insights provided in this volume serve to encourage searching mechanistic questions.
ANTO NIO RODRIGUEZ-MORENO is Associate Professor and Head of the Cellular Neuroscience and Plasticity Laboratory at the University Pablo de Olavide, in Seville, Spain. His main research interests include the study of the mechanisms of synaptic plasticity in cortex and hippocampus and the physiology of glutamate receptors of the NMDA an...
