Positive emotional learning is regulated in the medial prefrontal cortex by GluN2B-containing NMDA receptors



Conclusions
Positive emotional learning in the MPFC, like spatial / temporal learning in the hippocampus, appears to all be mediated in part by GluN2B-containing NMDARs. Thus the mechanisms that regulate positive emotional learning appear to have some mechanistic similarities to those that govern synaptic plasticity in the hippocampus.
