GABA and glutamate signaling: homeostatic control of adult forebrain neurogenesis
TLDR
It is shown here that glutamate antibodies strongly label subventricular zone (SVZ) astrocytes, some of which are stem cells, and that some SVZ neuroblasts express one of the ionotropic glutamate receptors, AMPA/kainate receptors, earlier than previously thought.

Excitatory GABA Action Is Essential for Morphological Maturation of Cortical Neurons In Vivo
GABA exerts excitatory actions on embryonic and neonatal cortical neurons, but the in vivo function of this GABA excitation is essentially unknown. Using in utero electroporation, we eliminated the
GABA-Induced Ca2+-Signaling in Rat Hippocampal Astrocytes
TLDR
A developmental profile of GABA(B) receptor-mediated Ca2+ transients suggests that astrocytes play a role during postnatal maturation of the hippocampal network.
Glutamate enhances proliferation and neurogenesis in human neural progenitor cell cultures derived from the fetal cortex
TLDR
It is shown that glutamate can significantly increase the proliferation rates of human neural progenitor cells (hNPC), and whether the glutamate‐responsive hNPC had an increased potential for neurogenesis is found, and it is suggested that glutamate stimulates the division of human progenitors cells with neurogenic potential.
GABAergic Input Affects Intracellular Calcium Levels in Developing Granule Cells of Adult Rat Hippocampus
TLDR
A novel molecular and electrophysiological mechanism, involving calcium-activated potassium channels (BK) and T-type voltage-dependent calcium channels, through which GABA fine-tunes intracellular calcium homeostasis in rat adult-born granule neurons early during their maturation might be instrumental in promoting newborn cell survival.
Roles of taurine-mediated tonic GABAA receptor activation in the radial migration of neurons in the fetal mouse cerebral cortex
TLDR
Taurine, which is derived from maternal blood but is abundant in the fetal brain, might play a major role as an endogenous agonist of embryonic tonic GABAAR conductance, regulating the radial migration of neurons in the developing neocortex.
Modulation of cellular proliferation and differentiation through GABAB receptors expressed by undifferentiated neural progenitor cells isolated from fetal mouse brain
TLDR
It is suggested that GABABR may be functionally expressed by neural progenitor cells to preferentially promote the commitment toward a neuronal lineage after the activation of cellular proliferation toward self‐replication in the developing mouse brain.
Glutamate Inhibits GABA Excitatory Activity in Developing Neurons
TLDR
The data suggest that in developing neurons glutamate can inhibit the excitatory actions of GABA at both presynaptic and postsynaptic sites, and this may be one set of mechanisms whereby the actions of two excitatories transmitters, GABA and glutamate, do not lead to runaway excitation in the developing brain.

GABAergic Growth Cones: Release of Endogenous γ‐Aminobutyric Acid Precedes the Expression of Synaptic Vesicle Antigens
TLDR
The results suggest that GABAergic neurones synthesize GABA during neurite outgrowth and that GABA is present in, and can be released from, the growth cones of these neurones.
GABA neurotransmission in the hypothalamus: developmental reversal from Ca2+ elevating to depressing
TLDR
It is suggested that GABA elevates Ca2+ in developing, but not mature, neurons from the hypothalamus and all other brain regions examined, or whether it might exist throughout the brain.
Lineage analysis reveals neurotransmitter (GABA or glutamate) but not calcium-binding protein homogeneity in clonally related cortical neurons
TLDR
By injecting a retroviral vector expressing beta-galactosidase into the telencephalic ventricles of rat embryos at different stages, a large number of clonally related neurons from brains injected at different ages are observed, suggesting the existence of different mechanisms that generate the pyramidal and nonpyramidal neurons of the cerebral cortex.
Mechanisms of GABA and glycine depolarization‐induced calcium transients in rat dorsal horn neurons.
TLDR
Both the depolarization and the increases in [Ca2+]i caused by GABA and glycine could potentially play a role in processes of development and differentiation and sensory transmission in the spinal cord dorsal horn.
Development of hyperpolarizing inhibitory postsynaptic potentials and hyperpolarizing response to gamma-aminobutyric acid in rabbit hippocampus studied in vitro
TLDR
The postnatal development of IPSPs and response to locally applied GABA were examined using intracellular recording techniques and suggest that the late development of synaptic inhibition in rabbit hippocampus is due, at least in part, to an immaturity in the GABAergic system.
Initial expression and endogenous activation of NMDA channels in early neocortical development
TLDR
It is demonstrated that NMDA channels are initially expressed on neocortical neurons some time between the last mitotic division within the ventricular zone and completion of migration into the cortical plate, indicating thatNMDA channels may play a role during early stages of cortical development.
GABA-induced chemokinesis and NGF-induced chemotaxis of embryonic spinal cord neurons
TLDR
Using an in vitro microchemotaxis assay, it is shown that rat embryonic spinal cord neurons migrate toward picomolar NGF and femtomolar GABA beginning at embryonic day 13 (E13).

The role of chloride transport in postsynaptic inhibition of hippocampal neurons.
TLDR
The effects of furosemide suggest that the internal chloride activity of an individual hippocampal neuron is regulated by two transport processes, one that accumulates chloride and one that extrudes chloride.
