In this long-awaited 2nd edition of a classic book, leading neuroscientists critically review the latest advances made in our understanding of the fundamental molecular, biochemical, behavioral, and pharmacological properties of GABA receptors. The distinguished contributors clarify the approaches being taken to identify and develop new therapeutic agents for such neurological and psychiatric disorders as epilepsy, memory loss, affective illnesses, and psychosis. They also examine the therapeutic potential that remains in the cloning and expression of the GABA transporter, and in developing additional agents capable of regulating GABA receptor function. The book will play a key role in further expanding the list of drugs that interact with the GABA neurotransmitter more
