Comments P.12 right column: "There is also pharmacological evidence for the non-NMDA ionotropic ampa/kainate receptor [N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor](Willis et al., 1996), and [investigators] have found GluR1 immunoreactivity in about 30–40% of NTS neurons activated by gastric distension (primary source)."
