Introduction: Transient receptor potential vanilloid 1 (TRPV1) belongs to a family of ligand gated ion channels. This non-selective cation channel is permeable to Na+, K+ and highly to Ca2+ ions. It acts as a trigger for Ca2+ mediated cell signaling. Although this channel has been previously found highly expressed in dorsal root ganglion, there is a line of evidence indicating the remarkable expression of TRPV1 channels in other parts of the central nervous system. Conclusion: There is evidence to suggest that TRPV1 channels in the brain contribute in many basic neuronal functions, including neurotransmitter release and synaptic plasticity.
Keywords: TRPV1 receptor, Synaptic Transmission, Neuronal Plasticity
