We evaluated the involvement of dorsal hippocampus (DH) 5-HT1A receptors in the mediation of the behavioral effects caused by the pharmacological manipulation of 5-HT neurons in the median raphe nucleus (MRN). To this end, we used the rat elevated T-maze test of anxiety. The results showed that intra-DH injection of the 5-HT1A/7 agonist 8-OH-DPAT(More)
Electrical or chemical stimulation of the dorsal periaqueductal gray matter (DPAG) evokes escape, a defensive behavior that has been related to panic attacks. Injection of 5-HT(1A) or 5-HT(2A) receptor agonists into this midbrain area inhibits this response. It has been proposed that the impairment of 5-HT mechanisms controlling escape at the level of the(More)
