Access from EThOS:
GABAa α2-subunit containing receptors are known to be expressed in brain regions associated with anxiety, conditioning and the rewarding properties of drugs of abuse, particularly the amygdala and nucleus accumbens (NAcc). Generation of a GABAa α2-subunit knockout mouse has enabled the role of this subunit to be investigated in these behaviours.
