Fluoxetine, as a serotonin re-uptake inhibitor augments serotonin concentration within the synapse by inhibiting the serotonin transporter. The contribution of amino acids has also been shown in depression. We hypothesized that fluoxetine exerts its actions at least in part by intervening brain signaling operated by amino acid transmitters. Therefore the(More)
Genetic absence epilepsy rats from Strasbourg (GAERS), a selectively inbred strain of Wistar rats, has been validated as an experimental model for human absence epilepsy. In this model, systemic administration of ethosuximide (ETX) was shown to reduce the spike and wave discharges (SWD). In this study, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and L-glutamic acid(More)
Cholestasis contributes to the genesis of fatigue through several mechanisms. Among these mechanisms, affected serotonergic neurotransmission is important in the pathogenesis of central fatigue. Previously, elevated levels of 5-hydroxyindole acetic acid (5-HIAA), the metabolite of 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) and increased 5-HT(2) receptor density were(More)
