Glutamate where? Hippocampus? Nucleus accumbens? Glutamate is the brain's predominant excitatory neurotransmitter, with many receptor subtypes. Global elevations or reductions will probably improve some functions and worsen others. But blocking NMDA-subtype receptors seems to ameliorate depression, at least judging from the effects of ketamine.
