NMDA (N-methyl-D-aspartate) is the selective agonist that binds to NMDA receptors but not to other glutamate receptors. The NMDA receptor (NMDAR) is the predominant molecular device for controlling synaptic plasticity and memory function. The NMDAR is a type of ionotropic glutamate receptor. Activation of NMDA receptors requires binding of glutamate or aspartate (aspartate does not stimulate the receptors as strongly). In addition, NMDARs also require the binding of the co-agonist glycine.

Wind-up pain is caused by activation of normally dormant NMDA receptors.Activated NMDA receptors cause - influx of Calcium into Dorsal Horn Wide Dynamic Range interneurons resulting in a cycle of - increased production/sensitization/number of NMDA receptors &  increased release of Glutamate/Substance-P at presynaptic sites  This positive feedback loop results in a marked increase in the pain signal ultimately perceived by the brain.
