This Perspective by Tasker is one of two discussing the regulation of ion channels by neurosteroids. Neurosteroids are steroids synthesized in the brain that act as allosteric modulators of ion-channel activity. The dual regulation of γ-aminobutyric acid type A (GABAA) receptors and voltage-gated calcium channels by phosphorylation and neurosteroids is the focus of this Perspective.
