Glutamate Receptor Trafficking in Synaptic Plasticity

Anis Contractor* and Stephen F. Heinemann

Gloss: The regulated movement of glutamate receptors into and out of excitatory synapses is believed to be an important determinant of synaptic plasticity. We review recent advances in our knowledge of the mechanisms involved in these processes.
