Inferred class

A list of all neurons that have been indicated as using the neurotransmitter "GABA".

  • This table is generated programmatically from the property "neurotransmitter" assigned to members of the Neuron class. To add to this list, go to the category page for the type of neuron you are interested in adding and add "Glycine" to the "Has Neurotransmitter" field in the Petilla form.

This table is also available in CSV



Neurotransmitter Synonym Definition Located in Species
Cochlear nucleus (dorsal) cartwheel cell Glycine
Cartwheel neuron Cartwheel cell bodies lie on the superficial side of the pyramidal (or fusiform) cell layer of the dorsal cochlear nucleus. Their spiny dendrites receive input from the axons of granule cells (parallel fibers) and their axons release GABA and glycine onto cartwheel, pyramidal and giant cell targets. Cartwheel cells share many of the features, molecular and electrophysiological, of cerebellar Purkinje neurons. Somas lie at the superficial side of the pyramidal (fusiform) cell layer of the dorsal cochlear nucleus. Mammal
Cochlear nucleus (dorsal) vertical cell Glycine tuberculoventral cell
vertical cell
corn cell
Intrinsic neuron found in the deep layer of the dorsal cochlear nucleus, whose cell bodies and dendrites are intermingled among the basal dendritic trees of pyramidal cells. Their dendrites are smooth and lie in the plane of an isofrequency sheet; in sections in standard planes, parts of the dendrites are cut so they appear to be oriented vertically, perpendicular to the plane of the layers. They are inhibitory and use glycine as a neurotransmitter. Dorsal cochlear nucleus deep layer Vertebrata
Cochlear nucleus (ventral) multipolar D cell Glycine D multipolar cell
type II (Cant
onset-chopper responses to tones
radial stellate
wide-band inhibitor
One of two types of multipolar or stellate cells, D stellate cells are glycinergic inhibitory neurons named for having an axon that projects dorsalward into the dorsal cochlear nucleus and that exits through the intermediate acoustic stria to innervate the contralateral cochlear nucleus. Axons have widespread collaterals in the ventral cochlear nucleus and in the deep layer of the dorsal cochlear nucleus. Ventral cochlear nucleus Vertebrata
Retina amacrine cell GABA
Amacrine Neuron type II
Type II Amacrine cell
Cell in the inner plexiform layer of the retina, consisting of multiple dendrites and no axon. It makes synaptic connections with bipolar cell terminals and ganglion cell dendrites, as well as other amacrine cell dendrites. Amacrine II cells have gap junctions with bipolar terminals and other amacrine cells, which are switched on for night time vision. Retina inner plexiform layer Vertebrata

Trapezoid body medial nucleus principal cell Glycine Principal Cells Medial Nucleus Trapezoid Body
Trapezoid body medial nucleus principal neuron
Principal cell of the medial nucleus of the trapezoid body that receives input from the ventral cochlear nucleus at a specialized synaptic ending termed the Calyx of held. Medial nucleus of trapezoid body Cat
