To date, two positron emission tomography (PET) studies have explored 5-HT(1A) receptor density in the hippocampus of Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients. They showed early changes of 5-HT(1A) receptors in this brain region, known to have a dense serotonergic innervation. These studies only reported measurements in hippocampus. In the present PET study, we(More)
Serotonin 1A (5-HT1A) receptors are involved in several physiological and pathological processes and constitute therefore an important therapeutic target. The recent pharmacological concept of biased agonism asserts that highly selective agonists can preferentially direct receptor signaling to specific intracellular responses, opening the possibility of(More)
