Nathanson, Anna J.

Description
  • Ethanol withdrawal syndrome, characterized by glutamatergic hyperexcitability in the brain, is a defining characteristic of alcohol dependence. Glutamate hyperexcitability and an upregulation of NMDA receptors have been observed in the brains of mice in withdrawal from ethanol consumption.
