Human pluripotent stem cells (hPSCs)-induced GABAergic neurons can be seen here with the help of immunostaining. Neuronal dendrites are in red and identify neurons, while GABA positive sections in green further proves these neurons are GABAergic. These human GABAergic neurons were generated using a rapid and highly efficient single-step protocol published in Cell Reports by Duke-NUS Assistant Professor Shawn Je, National Neuroscience Institute Research Fellow Dr Alfred Sun and NUS Graduate School PhD student Mr Yuan Qiang, which can be taken advantage of to study human neuropsychiatric and neurological disorders related to GABAergic neuron dysfunction. More about their work can be read here.
