Studies have proven that possession of mass quantities of GABA can result in numerous side effects including drowsiness and anxiety. Seo said the ratios of GABA to creatine, a nitrogenous acid that occurs naturally in vertebrates, and GABA to Glx showed significant correlation to clinical scales of internet and smartphone addictions, depression and anxiety. However, the ratio of GABA to Glx in the addicted youth group recessed dramatically after repetitive sessions of cognitive behavioral therapy and in some instances normalized.
“The increased GABA levels and disrupted balance between GABA and glutamate in the anterior cingulate cortex may contribute to our understanding the pathophysiology of and treatment for addictions,” Seo said. However, more research is needed to understand the clinical implications of the team’s findings.
