gamma-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the major inhibitory neurotransmitter in the mammalian central nervous system (CNS). A decrease in GABAergic neurotransmission seems to be involved in neurological pathologies such as epilepsy, anxiety and pain. This review is focus on structure activity relationship studies aiming the search for new GABA uptake inhibitors.
