Astrocytes target presynaptic NMDA receptors to give synapses a boost

Abstract

Astrocytes modulate synaptic strength. This effect occurs, reports a new paper, because ATP-dependent vesicular release of astrocytic glutamate acts on presynaptic neuronal NMDA receptors to increase synaptic efficacy.
