What impact does monosodium glutamate (MSG) have upon neurological effects?

Glutamate is a major excitatory neurotransmitter found with the central nervous system. Glutamate plays an important role in normal neurological functioning such as fast response to stimuli, cognition, memory, movement, and sensation. However, in excessive levels, glutamate is excitotoxic and has been shown to cause neurological damage. It is believed that the neurotoxic effects of glutamate result in motor neuron damage and ALS Many questions surface as to the dietary intake of monosodium glutamate (MSG) and whether or not glutamate in food has an impact upon neurological effects. Extensive research in biochemical, toxicological and medical research studies have demonstrated that MSG poses no “significant health hazard” to the general public. Most recently, in 1995, the report from the Federation of American Societies of Experimental Biology (FASEB), offers the most comprehensive existing evaluation to date of glutamate safety. The FASEB reaffirms the Food and Drug Administrations bel
