Availability of only very few 5-HT(6) receptor agonists, however, does not allow examining their contribution in psychopharmacological processes. Therefore, a new 5-HT(6) receptor(More)
ST2472 was shown to bind to multiple receptors, thus resembling the affinity spectrum of atypical antipsychotics. The present study investigates its in-vivo potential antipsychotic effects. ST2472 is effective in the conditioned avoidance response (CAR) test in rats (ED50=1.5 mg/kg p.o.), a model sensitive to antipsychotics. It antagonizes(More)
