Abstract

Cortical neurons use glutamate as a primary neurotransmitter, yet the mechanism through which glutamate receptors regulate higher order cognitive functions is unclear. In this issue of Neuron, Wang et al. (2013) report a previously uncharacterized role for NMDA NR2B receptors in driving mnemonic-related activity of prefrontal neurons.
