The NMDA Receptor plays a

critical role in

cognitive and psychological functions.


The NMDA (N-Methyl D-Aspartate) Receptor

NMDA-R is co-activated by Glutamate and Glycine.

Glycine acts as a co-factor to safely activate the receptor.

Glutamate activity in excess can produce excitotoxicity causing damage and death to neurons

NMDA is a Receptor in the

Glutamate Neurotransmitter System (GNS)

NMDA-Rs have a role to play in diverse

and complex processes of mind and brain including:

  •      Memory Formation and Long Term Potentiation (LTP)

  •      Excitotoxicity and Stroke Outcome

  •      Ego and Frontal Lobe Function

  •      Pain and Opiate Tolerance

  •      Alcoholism and Drug Abuse

  •      Schizophrenia and Depression

  •      Anhedonia

  •      Age-Related Memory Decline

  •      Dementia and Alzheimers

  •      ADHD

  •      Neuroprotection


“Long Term Potentiation (LTP)

 Leads to Structural and Functional Changes of the Synapse that

Make Neurotransmission More Efficient.”

NMDA-R abnormalities contribute to

cognitive and psychological deficits

that are challenging to treat.
