New findings on the link between nerve cells at the interface to the hippocampus

EngelhardtA team led by Dr Jakob von Engelhardt focused on the ‘AMPA’ receptors. These bind the neurotransmitter ‘glutamate’ and are particularly common in the brain. “We looked at AMPA receptors in an area of the brain, which constitutes the main entrance to the hippocampus,” explains von Engelhardt, who works for the DZNE and DKFZ. “The hippocampus is responsible for learning and memory formation. Among other things it processes and combines sensory perception. We therefore asked ourselves how the flow of information into the hippocampus is controlled.” Externer Inhalt
