Abstract :

After over seven decades of neuroscience research, it is now well established that [gamma]-aminobutyric acid (GABA) is the main inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain. In this paper dedicated to Kresimir Krnjevic (1927-2021), a pioneer and leader in neuroscience, we briefly highlight the fundamental contributions he made in identifying GABA as an inhibitory neurotransmitter in the brain and our personal interactions with him. Of note, between 1972 and 1978 Dr. Krnjevic was a highly reputed Chief Editor of the Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology. Key words: Kresimir Krnjevic, In memoriam. Apres plus de sept decennies de recherche en neurosciences, il est maintenant bien etabli que l'acide y- aminobutyrique (GABA) est le principal neurotransmetteur inhibiteur dans le cerveau. Dans cet article en hommage a Kresimir Krnjevic (1927-2021), pionnier et chef de file en neurosciences, nous soulignons brievement ses contributions fondamentales a l'etablissement du GABA comme neurotransmetteur inhibiteur dans le cerveau, de meme que nos interactions personnelles avec lui. A noter qu'entre 1972 et 1978, le Dr Krnjevic a ete un editeur en chef hautement repute de la Revue canadienne de physiologic et de pharmacologic. [Traduit par la Redaction] Mots-cles: Kresimir Krnjevic, In memoriam.
