D-Cycloserine Targets the NMDA Receptors to Enhance Synpatic Plasticity in Hippocampus (2024 Study)

In the complex and evolving field of neuroscience, the role of synaptic plasticity in psychiatric disorders has garnered significant attention. d-Cycloserine (DCS), a partial agonist of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor (NMDAR), emerges as a key player in potentially revolutionizing treatment approaches. Highlights: d-Cycloserine (DCS): Initially an antimicrobial agent, DCS is now known for its role as …

Synaptogenesis: 9 Ways To Form New Synapses In The Brain

Synapses are considered connections between neurons (brain cells) that foster neuronal communication.  The word “synapse” is derived from the Greek term “synapsis” which roughly translates to “conjunction.”  Your brain cells communicate with other cells by sending chemical messages in the form of neurotransmitters or electrical signals; these are transmitted via the synapses. If you have …
