GABA is a known inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian brain. The site of GABAergic synapses can be determined with immunocytochemical methods that localize either GABA or its synthesizing enzyme, glutamate decarboxylase (GAD). In general, GABAergic axon terminals contain pleomorphic synaptic vesicles and form symmetric synapses. However, a small number of GABAergic axon terminals in selected brain regions (spinal cord, cerebellum, superior colliculus, striatum, globus pallidus, inferior… CONTINUE READING
