Two classes of GABAergic cell bodies have been described. They probably can be divided into GABAergic local interneurons and GABAergic projection neurons. GABAergic cell bodies receive few terminals which is in contrast to non-GABAergic somata, which receive many synaptic contacts. GABAergic dendrites that originate from GABAergic cell bodies, however, receive numerous terminals, both GABAergic and nonGABAergic. It can therefore be concluded that somatic inhibition is not present on GABAergic… CONTINUE READING
