In the nematode Caenorhabditis elegans, where GABA also functions as a neuromuscular transmitter, genetic analyses have produced a deep understanding of inhibitory and excitatory GABA-ergic signaling (Jorgensen, 2005).
Spasticity appears to be caused by loss of reduced excitability of both postsynaptic (decreased reciprocal Ia or Ib inhibition, recurrent inhibition) and presynaptic inhibitory circuits (gamma-aminobutyric acid - GABA-ergic), which control the stretch reflex, postactivation depression decreases at spinal level (independent of the cortex) [4].

As GAD65 is located on both pancreatic islet cells and CNS gamma-amino-butyric acid (GABA-ergic) neurons, there is an association between GAD65 antibody positive CNS autoimmune disease and DM1.
Animal and neurobiology experiments have shown that schizophrenia is associated with genetic defects that involve changes of GABA-ergic neurons in the early stages of ontogeny.

Other directions of research in the neurobiology of depression analyze factors such as: brain-derived nurotrophic factor, corticotropine-releasing factor and glucocorticoides, the estrogenic a and p receptors, colinergic and GABA-ergic transmission, neuroinflammation, and the opioide system.
GERMANTOWN, Md., January 11, 2016 -- Researchers have reported that Neuralstem, Inc.'s (CUR) HK532-IGF-1 cells differentiated into a subtype of neurons (GABA-ergic) that are dysregulated in Alzheimer's disease (AD) and produced increased vascular endothelial growth factors (VEGF) in vitro.

The mesolimbic DA system in the CNS is thought to play a prominent role in the development of drug reward and is strongly modulated by other neurotransmitter systems, including the opioidergic, glutamatergic, and a-aminobutyric acid (GABA-ergic) systems.
