This dynamic field of research offers the exciting possibility for a better understanding of brain function. Presented here is an up-to-date review of the recent advances in basic research in the field. Topics covered include: the discovery of the neurotransmitter role of glycine; patch-clamp studies of glycine-gated chloride channels; the involvement of glycine in excitatory neurotransmission; antibodies and fixatives for the immunocytochemical localization of glycine; the anatomy, development, physiology and role of glycinergic neurons in the Xenopus embryo spinal cord; and immunocytochemistry of glycine and glycine receptors in the central auditory system.... previous hypotheses concerning the local neuronal circuitry (see particularly Mugnaini, 1985; Caspary, this volume). ... types with adjacent neuropil structures refers to the photomicrographs of Figures 8-11 and the final wiring diagram of Figure 12. ... and gly sections, while the Golgi cells appear double-labelled with high G ABA-LI and low gly-Ll.
