Glutamate receptors

Glutamate receptor

(Science: physiology) see amino acid receptor superfamily. Glutamate receptors are implicated in many important brain functions including long-term potentiation (LTP).

at least 4 major glutamate gated ion channel subtypes are presently distinguished on pharmacological grounds, named after their most selective agonists: N methyl D aspartate (nmda implicated in memory and learning, neuronal cell death, ischaemia and epilepsy), kainic acid (KA), quisqualate/AMPA and L 2 amino 4 phosphobutyrate (APB). A fifth subtype (APCD) trans 1 amino cyclopentane 1,3 dicarboxylate is a g-protein coupled receptor.

GABA inhibitory activity

Can somebody explain me the reason why the inhibitory activity of GABA's receptors is coupled to excitation? Why is there no effect of GABA signal if it is not near to the glutamate one?
