Gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a putative inhibitory neurotransmitter in the vertebrate nervous system. Several lines of evidence suggest that GABA plays an important role in the processing and modulation of sensory input in the spinal cord dorsal horn. In the present study, the relationship between GABA-immunoreactive (GABA-IR) terminals and spinothalamic tract (STT) cells in the monkey lumbar cord was investigated. Physiologically characterized STT cells, one located in lamina V and two… CONTINUE READING
