(RS)-MCPG disodium salt was in use to prevent contamination of NMDA-receptor – generated response to prolonged application of glutamate with (possible) impact from metabotropic glutamate receptors (mGluRs). APV, applied after glutamate, fully suppressed NMDA-receptor response, thus suggesting no input from mGluRs (see illustration). MCPG disodium salt works as expected; the effects and time interval for response development are same with those of (RS)-MCPG, but the salt is much easier soluble.

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 Poster
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.
