    The first part of the thesis deals with the structural studies of N-Methyl-D-Aspartate receptors (NMDARs). NMDARs are ionotropic ligand-gated receptors that have pivotal roles at the central neuronal system but, hyperactivity of NMDARs could contribute to neurodegenerative diseases. Therefore, understanding the activation mechanism of NMDARs is important as it may lead to the development of new treatments for neurodegenerative diseases. In this thesis, human GluN1/GluN2A type NMDAR is modeled ...
