This quantity represents the complaints of a NATO complicated learn Institute on Amino Acids as Chemical Transmitters, which took ~lace at Spatind inn in Norway, August 14-21, 1977. The assembly is expounded to 2 prior conferences on metabolic compart­ mentation within the mind. the 1st of those conferences came about at Rockefeller starting place, Bellagio, Italy, July 11-16, 1971 and the court cases, Metabolic Compartmentation in mind, have been edited via R. Balazs and J. E. Cremer and released via Macmillan in 1973. the second one assembly was once a complicated learn Institute on Metabolic Com­ partmentation and Neurotransmission Relation to mind constitution and serve as, which was once held in Oxford, September 1-8, 1974. The lawsuits have been edited by means of S. Berl, D. D. Clarke and D. Schneider and released as quantity 6 of the NATO ASI lifestyles technological know-how sequence through Plenum Press. the item of the current assembly used to be to study and speak about the current prestige of amino acids as chemical transmitters. a number of matters reminiscent of electrophysiological reaction, localization, synthe­ sis, unencumber and receptor binding of transmitter applicants have been mentioned. the prospective morphological correlates to those func­ tions have been additionally reviewed. through the assembly 24 major papers got. furthermore, numerous of the individuals awarded vital new findings throughout the dialogue. a few of these were incorporated as brief studies. the most monetary help was once got from NATO, clinical Affairs Division.

Does glial cell GABA_T degrade neurotransmitter GABA Ivhich has been taken up into their cell bodies? Why is GABA-T found in pre-synaptic processes of probable GABA neurones in the cerebellar cortex, for example, basket cell axon terminals in the Purkinje cell pericellular basket? 2-5, 1~m. 1 stellate nerve cell(s); basket nerve cells(b); Bergmann fibres (large arrows); Purkinje pericellular basket (large arrowheads); Purkinje cells(p); glial cells (small arrowheads). 2 stellate nerve cell(St); mitochondria (m-arrowheads).

C. HYDE found in more detail in Hyde and Robinson, 1976a. GABA-T activity is seen as a blue forma zan precipitate in light microscopic studies, or as an electron dense precipitate in electron microscopic studies. Formazan precipitation can be completely inhibited by the addition of 5 ~g/ml amino-oxyacetic acid as GABA_T inhibitor, (Wallach, 1961) or by the absence of GABA from the incubation medium. 1) shows that in the upper molecular layer the enzyme is localized in small nerve cell bodies identified as stellate nerve cells by their morphology and position.
