Classical Neurotransmitters - Part 4
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.

(2)   All classical neurotransmitters are small molecules.
(3)   In GABAergic terminals, GABA is synthesized from this precursor molecule:
(4)   In tissues containing γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), this enzyme is responsible for the biosynthesis of GABA:
(5)   In tissues containing γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA), this enzyme is responsible for the breakdown of GABA:
