Anxiety-like effects induced by acute fluoxetine, sertraline or m-CPP treatment are reversed by pretreatment with the 5-HT2C receptor antagonist SB-242084 but not the 5-HT1A receptor antagonist
The possible role of 5-HT1A and 5-HT2C receptors in the anxiety induced by fear, acute treatment with SSRI antidepressants or the 5-HT receptor agonist m-CPP were tested in the social interactionExpand

Serotonin and epilepsy
In recent years, there has been increasing evidence that serotonergic neurotransmission modulates a wide variety of experimentally induced seizures. Generally, agents that elevate extracellularExpand

Association of the s allele of the 5-HTTLPR with neuroticism-related traits and temperaments in a psychiatrically healthy population
IntroductionResearch concerning the genetic background of traits, temperaments and psychiatric disorders has been rapidly expanding. One of the most frequently studied genetic polymorphisms in theExpand

NO-induced migraine attack: strong increase in plasma calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) concentration and negative correlation with platelet serotonin release
&NA; The aim of the present study was to investigate changes in the plasma calcitonin gene‐related peptide (CGRP) concentration and platelet serotonin (5‐hydroxytriptamine, 5‐HT) content during theExpand

Collaborative meta-analysis finds no evidence of a strong interaction between stress and 5-HTTLPR genotype contributing to the development of depression
The hypothesis that the S allele of the 5-HTTLPR serotonin transporter promoter region is associated with increased risk of depression, but only in individuals exposed to stressful situations, hasExpand

Acute and long-term effects of the 5-HT2 receptor antagonist ritanserin on EEG power spectra, motor activity, and sleep: changes at the light–dark phase shift
Parallel effects of a single injection of the 5-HT(2) receptor antagonist ritanserin on EEG power spectra, sleep and motor activity were measured for a 20-h period in freely moving Sprague-DawleyExpand

5-HT2C receptors inhibit and 5-HT1A receptors activate the generation of spike–wave discharges in a genetic rat model of absence epilepsy
The present study was conducted to investigate the role of 5-HT(2C) and 5-HT(1A) receptors in the generation of spike-wave discharges (SWD) in the genetic absence epilepsy model Wistar Albino GlaxoExpand

Increased wakefulness, motor activity and decreased theta activity after blockade of the 5‐HT2B receptor by the subtype‐selective antagonist SB‐215505
Serotonin‐2 receptor antagonists, like ritanserin, greatly enhance deep slow wave sleep (SWS‐2) and low‐frequency EEG power in humans and rodents. 5‐HT2A and 5‐HT2C receptors may be involved in theseExpand

New Evidence for the Association of the Serotonin Transporter Gene (SLC6A4) Haplotypes, Threatening Life Events, and Depressive Phenotype
BACKGROUND Since the first report of the significant gene-environment interaction (G x E) in depression published by Caspi et al., the literature is considerably contradictory in this field. ToExpand

Mechanisms of serotonin receptor agonist-induced activation of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis in the rat.
A substantial body of experimental evidence indicates that serotonin (5-HT) and several synthetic 5-HT receptor agonists activate the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) axis. To explore theExpand
