Neuronal Receptors (s) having but not LTP or LTD (SOBiv p90).Motoneurons have a high density of AMPA receptors (Vandenberghe et al, JNS 20: 7158, 2000). There is evidence that "glutamate receptor-mediated Ca2+ influx, intracellular Ca2+ accumulation, and subsequent cell death" may be involved in the mechanism of selective motoneuron degeneration in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. as Publication facts
