Enhancement of the activation of GABAA receptors is a common feature of many sedative and hypnotic drugs, and it is probable that the GABAA receptor complex is a molecular target for these drugs in the mammalian central nervous system. We set out to elucidate the role of the two predominant (alpha1 and beta2) subunits of GABAA receptor in sedative drug(More)
In this study we investigated the functional implications of GABAA receptor alpha1 subunit deletion on dendritic arborization and spine maturation in the visual cortex. This subunit is normally strongly upregulated during early postnatal development. Our main finding is that mice lacking the GABAA receptor alpha1 subunit displayed an increased density of(More)
