Can Nootropics Help With Drug Abuse and Addiction?

In recent years, evidence has compiled suggesting a common pathologic mechanism underlying addictive behaviours of several substances. Dysregulation of glutamatergic neurotransmission within the prefrontal cortex (PFC) and nucleus accumbens (NA) appears to predispose to a higher tendency towards drug-seeking behaviour. 11 kata lagi

Lrp4 in astrocytes modulates glutamatergic transmission

Published online June 13 2016

“We found that glutamate release in the brain was impaired in mice lacking low-density lipoprotein receptor–related protein 4 (Lrp4), a protein that is critical for neuromuscular junction formation.” 219 kata lagi
