Development of GABA innervation in the cerebral and cerebellar cortices

  title={Development of GABA innervation in the cerebral and cerebellar cortices},
  author={Z. Josh Huang and Graziella di Cristo and Fabrice Ango},
  journal={Nature Reviews Neuroscience},
In many areas of the vertebrate brain, such as the cerebral and cerebellar cortices, neural circuits rely on inhibition mediated by GABA (γ-aminobutyric acid) to shape the spatiotemporal patterns of electrical signalling. The richness and subtlety of inhibition are achieved by diverse classes of interneurons that are endowed with distinct physiological properties. In addition, the axons of interneurons display highly characteristic and class-specific geometry and innervation patterns, and… CONTINUE READING
