Excitotoxins are amino acids that also serve as neurotransmitters in the brain. The nervous system needs amino acid neurotransmitters to operate. But when the dose is too high or builds from excessive daily intake, these amino acids cross the blood brain barrier and excite the neurons of brain cells to a point of absolute exhaustion. Then those brain neurons eventually die.

MSG, or monosodium glutamate, is used almost exclusivly in processed foods including batter for frying foods like CHICKEN. KFC doses can make you so thirsty you will really need that 60oz coke with High Frutose Corn Syrup. But thats a topic I will bring up later.
Asparatame is another cuplrit.
There are over 40 hidden names for MSG on food labels.
Glutamic acid (E 620)
Glutamate (E 620)
Monosodium glutamate (E 621)
Monopotassium glutamate (E 622)
Calcium glutamate (E 623)
Monoammonium glutamate (E 624)
Magnesium glutamate (E 625)
Natrium glutamate
Yeast extract
Anything “hydrolyzed”
Any “hydrolyzed protein”
Calcium caseinate,  Sodium caseinate
Yeast food, Yeast nutrient
Autolyzed yeast
Textured protein
Soy protein, soy protein concentrate
Soy protein isolate
Whey protein, whey protein concentrate
Whey protein isolate
Anything “…protein”
Disodium 5’-guanylate (E 627)
Disodium 5’-inosinate (E-631)
Disodium 5′-ribonucleotides (E 635)
Natural to what. If they can't produce a specific flavor then its made up and added to the product so you will want to keep eating it.
Remember the commerical: You can't only eat just one potato chip! Yep MSG is the reason. It makes you want to eat more which leads to more sodas.
When you eat real, whole foods, you automatically avoid MSG, asparatme and other excitotoxins. No need to memorize the whole list of different food additives and E numbers, simply skip the processed junk and EAT REAL FOOD!
RULE OF THUMB: If you can't make the ingredient or buy the ingredient in some store that is on your food lable DONT BUY IT.
I even read the lable of ingredients on packaged frozen food also. Even Trader Joe's products.
