Continuing on from yesterday… Ketamine is not the only drug which blocks NMDA receptors. The topic is important, so make sure you know all of them. Today though we will stick with physiology.
BT_PM 1.26 Describe the location and role of NMDA receptors
TRUE/FALSE The NMDA receptor is involved in development of tolerance to opioids.
TRUE/FALSE Glutamate acts at NMDA receptors in the dorsal horn.
TRUE/FALSE The resting NMDA receptor is blocked by magnesium.
TRUE/FALSE Activation of postsynaptic NMDA receptors causes influx of sodium and calcium.
TRUE/FALSE Presynaptic NMDA receptor activation reduces cell excitability.
