is a chemical agonist called N-methyl-D-aspartate, a synthetic amino acid derivative. This chemical mimics the action of glutamate at a specific type of receptor called the NMDA receptor, without affecting other glutamate receptors. The NMDA receptor is thought to play a crucial role in synaptic plasticity, and thus learning and memory.
