Physiology Quiz - Classical Neurotransmitters - Part 5
Classical neurotransmitters refer to a small group of small molecule neurotransmitters. These neurotransmitters are used by the nervous system in a variety of circuits to transmit information from pre-synaptic neurons to post-synaptic cells. Test your basic knowledge of classical neurotransmitters by taking this simple quiz.
(1) After the discovery of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the mammalian brain, its inhibitory actions were first demonstrated in this tissue:
(2) Before it was determined that the inhibitory extract from the mammalian brain was in fact γ-aminubutyric acid (GABA), the extract was commonly referred to as:
(3) This classical neurotransmitter is the predominant inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian cortex and midbrain.
(4) This classical neurotransmitter is the predominant inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian brainstem and spinal cord.
(5) If the inhibitory actions of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and glycine are blocked by bicuculline and strychnine, respectively, the following will be observed:
