The distributions of N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA), alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-S-methyl-4-isoxazole propionic acid (AMPA) and kainic acid (KA) receptors were determined in the human cerebellum using autoradiography. In contrast to the cerebral cortex, where KA receptors have a complementary distribution to NMDA and AMPA receptors, AMPA receptors were concentrated in the cerebellar molecular layer while NMDA and KA receptors were concentrated in the granular layer.
