GABAergic neurons.

Abstract

One tends to think of the nervous system in terms of chains of excitatory signals that tell neurons to fire. The signals that say "Don't fire" also have a major role. Inhibitory signals damp overall neural activity and also fine-tune the responses of particular circuits. The primary carrier of these signals is the inhibitory transmitter known as GABA.
