Brain inhibition relies largely on inhibitory neurotransmitter receptors activated by GABA . Following an introduction on GABA receptors and inhibitory synapses, the presentation will focus on allosteric regulation of GABA receptors by naturally occurring molecules released in the brain – the neurosteroids. The second part will concentrate on genetic issues and how altered brain inhibition might contribute to alcoholism.
