In a breakthrough that may help in developing drugs for Alzheimer's and other neurological disorders researchers have developed a 3D view of an important receptor in the brain. This receptor allows us to learn and remember and its dysfunction can result in a wide range of neurological diseases including Alzheimer's Parkinson's schizophrenia and depression. The unprecedented view gives scientists new insight into how the receptor - called the NMDA receptor - is structured. And importantly the new detailed view gives vital clues for developing drugs to combat neurological diseases and conditions. 'This is the most exciting moment of my career'
