Selective group III metabotropic glutamate receptor antagonist. Displays an apparent KD of 51 μM for the L-AP4-sensitive presynaptic mGluR on primary afferent terminals in spinal cord compared to > 700 μM for the (1S,3S)-ACPD-sensitive presynaptic mGlu in the same system. Has no activity on postsynaptic mGlu receptors or on ionotropic glutamate receptors on neonatal rat motoneurons. Also available as part of the Group III mGlu Receptor Tocriset™.

The key feature of drug addiction is the inability to stop using a drug despite clear evidence of harm. This poster describes the brain circuits associated with addiction, and provides an overview of the main classes of addictive drugs and the neurotransmitter systems that they target.
Learning & Memory Poster
Recognition memory enables us to make judgements about whether or not we have encountered a particular stimulus before. This poster outlines the cellular mechanisms underlying recognition memory and its links to long-term depression, as well as the use of pharmacological intervention to assess the role of neurotransmitters in recognition memory.
Parkinson's disease (PD) causes chronic disability and is the second most common neurodegenerative condition. This poster outlines the neurobiology of the disease, as well as highlighting current therapeutic treatments for symptomatic PD, and emerging therapeutic strategies to delay PD onset and progression.
Schizophrenia is a debilitating psychiatric disorder that affects 1% of the worldwide population. This poster describes the neurobiology of Schizophrenia, as well as highlighting the genetic and environmental factors that play a fundamental role in the etiology of the disease. The current and emerging drug targets are also discussed.
