Abstract: The well-known inhibitory neurotransmitter GABA is excitatory to immature neurons during development as well as to neural progenitor cells during adult neurogenesis. Recent evidence indicates that GABA plays a role in regulating neurogenesis in various situations. This journal club paper aims to provide a skeleton description of GABA regulation of neurogenesis, describing some of the disparate mechanisms and scenarios in which it is involved.
