Cerebellum interneuron granule GLU cellAxon terminalNMDA.Involvement of presynaptic NMDA receptors in cerebellar long-term depression at parallel fiber-Purkinje cell synapses (Casado M et al, 20022 ). NMDA reversibly depresses postsynaptic currents, through a trans-synaptic mechanism that involves release from parallel fibers nitric oxide that decreases the glutamate sensitivity of the Purkinje cell (Casado M et al, 20001 ).
