Inhibition in the nervous system occurs when a neuron or circuit is rendered less likely to generate an action potential. It generally involves the release of an inhibitory neurotransmitter such as GABA, which acts to hyperpolarize a neuron and thus increase the threshold for depolarization and action potential generation.
