The nervous system functions as a communication system, transmitting messages in the form of action potentials along the axons of neurons and in the form of neurotransmitters at synapses between neurons and the cells they control.

GABA (Gamma-Aminobutyric acid) is a neurotransmitter in the central nervous system of mammals. GABA’s role changes from excitatory to inhibitory as the brain develops into adulthood. Normally, when a neuron receives an impulse, it will make the signal stronger, an inhibiting neurotransmitter prevents the cell from receiving the impulse, and the signal as a whole is weakened.

Synaptic Transmission Like wires in your home's electrical system, nerve cells make connections with one another in circuits called neural pathways.
