ABSTRACT

BACKGROUND

Despite the numerous emerging antidepressant treatments selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors still remain the treatment of choice. There are some preclinical studies which have shown that low brain levels of Gamma aminobutyric acid are associated with depression. There is also evidence that some drugs that mimic GABA have potent antidepressant and mood stabilising properties.

KEYWORDS

GABA, Serotonin, PFC.
