- Thalamic NMDA receptor function is necessary for patterning of the thalamocortical somatosensory map and for sensorimotor behaviorsHiroyuki Arakawa
Departments of Anatomy and Neurobiology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland 21201
J Neurosci 34:12001-14. 2014..Collectively, these results show that thalamic NMDARs play a critical role in the patterning of the somatosensory thalamic and cortical maps and their impairment may lead to pronounced behavioral defects. ..
- Functional significance of cortical NMDA receptors in somatosensory information processingFu Sun Lo
Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology, University of Maryland School of Medicine, Baltimore, Maryland
J Neurophysiol 110:2627-36. 2013..Thus, when NMDAR function is impaired, spatial discrimination of whisker inputs is severely compromised, and sensory stimulation evokes diffuse, topographically misaligned activity in the barrel cortex...
