What do GABA Receptors do?

GABA Receptors make the neuron less probable to move an action potential. These allow chloride and potassium ions to flow into the subunits of GABA, receptors also help release neurotransmitters out of it. GABA-a receptor flows the negative chloride ions into the neuron which results in less action movement. GABA-b receptor frequently causes the positively charged ions to flow out of the neuron and as a result, the action potential of neurons decreases.
