2001). 4 Schematic structure of the GABAA receptor pentamer composed of two ␣ subunits, two ␤ subunits, and one ␥ subunit. The neurotransmitter GABA binds to a site at the interface between the ␣ and ␤ subunits (ⅷ) causing the ClϪ channel to open. Benzodiazepines such as clonazepam and diazepam bind to a site at the interface of the ␣ and ␥ subunits. ture development of selective anxiolytic drugs. The sedative actions of benzodiazepines, in contrast, appear to be mediated by ␣ subunit-containing GABAA receptors.

The concentration of GABA in the synaptic cleft is controlled by the high-affinity uptake into presynaptic terminals and glial cells. GABA represents the major inhibitory transmitter in the brain, and this inhibition is mediated by GABA binding to postsynaptic receptors. GABAergic systems serve important regulatory functions in the brain, such as vigilance, anxiety, muscle tension, epiletogenic activity, and memory. In brain areas such as the cerebral cortex and hippocampus, GABAergic neurons are predominantly interneurons that function as primary regulators of the activity of the projecting glutamatergic pyramidal neurons.
