Modulation of Synaptic Potentials in situ by Specific Agonists of Excitatory Amino Acids
The discovery and synthesis of specific agonists and antagonists of excitatory amino acid receptors (Watkins and Evans, 1981) has sparked a renewed interest in the neurobiology of glutamate, aspartate and other endogenous excitatory amino acids.
