The activation of GABA receptor subtype A (GABA(A)) and GABA receptor subtype B (GABA(B)) receptors mediates differential effects on GABAergic and non-GABAergic transmission in the basal ganglia. To further characterize the anatomical substrate that underlies these functions, we used immunogold labeling to compare the subcellular and subsynaptic localization of GABA(A) and GABA(B) receptors in the subthalamic nucleus (STN). Our findings demonstrate major differences and some similarities in the… CONTINUE READING
