    Most neurons in the striatum are projection neurons (SPNs) which make synapses with each other within distances of approximately 100 µm. About 5% of striatal neurons are GABAergic interneurons whose axons expand hundreds of microns. Short-term synaptic plasticity (STSP) between...

    In the cerebral cortex, the major inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA (?-aminobutyric acid) is released by GABAergic neurons onto GABAA and GABAB receptors, and regulates neuronal excitability, postsynaptic action potential firing, and dendritic and synaptic integration. Various interneurons use...

    GABAergic interneurons are critical for the normal function and development of neural circuits, and their dysfunction is implicated in a large number of neurodevelopmental disorders. Experience and activity-dependent mechanisms play an important role in GABAergic circuit development, also recent...

    Neural activity regulates the number and properties of GABAergic synapses in the brain, but the mechanisms underlying these changes are unclear. We found that blocking spike activity globally in developing hippocampal neurons from rats reduced the density of GABAergic terminals as well as the...

    The article reflects on the issue of plasticity of GABAergic synapses. It is also said that the plasticity of inhibition in acute and chronic stress involve region-specific changes of GABAA receptor subunit expression and chloride gradient. It is also said that synaptic signaling does not depend...

    During physiological patterns of activity, synaptic activity is regulated by many forms of short-term plasticity. Here, we compare the functional consequences of such plasticity at the synapse from the climbing fibre to the Purkinje cell in the cerebellum and at the synapse between the retinal...

    Knowledge of the functional organization of the GABAergic system, the main inhibitory neurotransmitter system, in the CNS has increased remarkably in recent years. In particular, substantial progress has been made in elucidating the molecular mechanisms underlying the formation and plasticity of...
