In the adult central nervous system (CNS), γ-amino butyric acid (GABA) is a predominant inhibitory neurotransmitter, and is involved in the expression of various higher brain functions. In the cerebellum, formation of GABAergic synapses is crucial for cerebellar functions. However, it is not fully understood how GABAergic synapses and networks are formed. We are morphologically investigating the developmental changes in GABAergic signaling and the mechanisms underlying the assembly of GABAergic… CONTINUE READING
