In neuroscience, glutamate is a neurotransmitter chemical that is responsible for 90% of synaptic connections in the brain. It’s also responsible for strengthening and weakening neural signals that affect memory and learning. 

Think of glutamate as the electricity that travels through your brain. Once it fires off, the brain triggers different parts of the body to create an action. Whether it’s a small action, such as remembering, or big actions such as hearing, seeing, or moving, glutamate is responsible for connecting all the neurons to execute it. 

Both involuntary and voluntary actions are caused by glutamate. Which is why glutamate is credited for the fast signaling and information processing of the brain. 

Unlike other neurotransmitters, glutamate does not cross the blood-brain barrier, which means it only synthesizes in the brain. It’s a neurotransmitter heavily involved in the creation of memories. 

Watch a very detailed explanation of glutamate for a better understanding of this neurotransmitter. If you’re confused if glutamate and MSG are the same, watch this video that differentiates both chemicals
