Withdrawal, aka increased excitatory, why would there by MORE gaba stimulation, aka more inhibitory?
The passage said that alcohol INCREASES the inhibitory activity of GABA. Hence, it is a depressant.GABA smoothes out body movement and alcohol inhibits the GABA receptors. After sobering up, the body is trying to compensate for the inhibition by increasing GABA levels, but now overstimulation of the receptors makes movements all herky-jerky.
From the q-stem: let "uncontrolled electrical activity" lead you to (C) increased action potentials.
