What a privilege to reside at the synapse: NMDA receptor signaling to CREB

Antonella Riccio, David D. Ginty

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


NMDA receptors are important for both normal transmission and pathological damage. New results indicate that receptor location makes the key difference: survival-promoting signals derive from synaptic receptors, whereas a cell-death signal comes from extrasynaptic receptors.
