Possible involvement of GABA in the central actions of benzodiazepines.
TLDR
It is concluded that benzodiazepines probably enhance presynaptic inhibition at all levels of the neuraxis and that this effect requires not only the presence of GABA but is also dependent on an activity of GABA-ergic neurons.
Electrophysiological actions of benzodiazepines.
TLDR
It is proposed that some postsynaptic actions of GABA may be continually regulated by the occupancy of a benzodiazepine receptor, and that occupancy of the benzodiazine receptor may be permissive for the GABA-elicited increase in chloride ion permeability.
GABA-benzodiazepine interactions: physiological, pharmacological and developmental aspects.
TLDR
Data suggest that there is a functionally significant interaction between the benzodiazepines and GABA throughout development and at maturity and a model is proposed to relate these interactions to conformational changes in a Benzodiazepine/GABA/Cl- ionophore complex.
Benzodiazepines and central inhibitory mechanisms
TLDR
It is concluded that actions of diazepam are mediated, at least in part, by a specific increase in GABA-mediated inhibition in the central nervous system.
