Possible Interaction: Ethanol and Gaba Agents



Research Papers that Mention the Interaction

This study demonstrated that ethanol reduces spinal excitability and increases GABAergic presynaptic inhibition on Ia afferent fibers in humans.
Brain Research  •  2007  |  View Paper
There is growing evidence linking prenatal ethanol exposure to abnormal GABAergic interneuronal migration and subsequent cortical dysfunction.
Neurochemical Research  •  2016  |  View Paper
In addition, ethanol induced the imbalance between glutamatergic and GABAergic neuronal differentiation via transient increase in the expression of Pax6, Ngn2 and NeuroD with concomitant decrease in the expression of Mash1.
Journal of Biomedical Science  •  2010  |  View Paper
Furthermore, ethanol increases GABAergic neurotransmission through indirect effects, including the elevation of endogenous GABAergic neuroactive steroids, presynaptic release of GABA, and dephosphorylation of GABAA receptors promoting increases in GABA sensitivity.
Psychopharmacology  •  2009  |  View Paper
There is substantial evidence that GABAergic neurotransmission is important for many behavioral actions of ethanol and there are reports spanning more than 30 years of literature showing that low to moderate (3-30 mM) concentrations of ethanol enhance GABAergic neurotransmission.
Pharmacology Biochemistry and Behavior  •  2008  |  View Paper
Although it was initially thought that ethanol interacted solely with the postsynaptic GABAA receptors that mediate the majority of fast synaptic inhibition in the …), a number of recent studies have identified novel pre- and postsynaptic mechanisms that may contribute to the acute and long-term effects of ethanol … GABAergic ….
Pharmacology & therapeutics  •  2006  |  View Paper
Stimulation of the endogenous GABAergic system might mediate the sedative and drive-reducing (trophotropic) properties of ethanol.
Alcohol  •  1996  |  View Paper
Presynaptic GABAergic neurons may experience a reduced activity, especially at low doses of ethanol.
The interaction of ethanol with GABAergic neurons is a complex one involving both presynaptic and postsynaptic sites.
Neuroscience & Biobehavioral Reviews  •  1983  |  View Paper
Furthermore, GABAergic and glutamatergic neurotransmission within regions/circuits that regulate cognitive function, emotion, and their integration appears to be the most vulnerable to adolescent ethanol exposure.
Handbook of experimental pharmacology  •  2019  |  View Paper
Prolonged exposure to ethanol alters neurotransmitter release at many CNS GABAergic and glutamatergic synapses, and changes in GPCR function are implicated in many of these neuroadaptations.
