A review of central 5-HT receptors and their function
An electrophysiological and neuroanatomical study of the medial prefrontal cortical projection to the midbrain raphe nuclei in the rat
Induction of c-Fos expression in specific areas of the fear circuitry in rat forebrain by anxiogenic drugs
Effect of a tyrosine-free amino acid mixture on regional brain catecholamine synthesis and release
It is indicated that administration of a tyrosine-free amino acid mixture to rats depletes brain tyrosines to cause a decrease in regional brain catecholamine synthesis and release, and dopaminergic neurones appear to be more vulnerable to tyosine depletion than noradrenergic neurone depletion.

The data show that a transient and limited glutamatergic intervention during development can have chronic behavioural, structural and molecular effects, and are consistent with hypotheses advocating a role for NMDA receptor hypofunction, and aberrant apoptosis, in the neurodevelopmental pathogenesis of the disorder.

Pretreatment with the selective 5‐HT1A receptor antagonist, WAY 100635, blocked the inhibitory effect of paroxetine on5‐HT neuronal activity in the DRN and, at the same time, markedly enhanced the effect ofParoxetines on extracellular 5‐ HT in the FCx.

It is concluded that COMT activity specifically affects ED set shifting and is a significant modulator of mPFC DA but not NE under conditions of increased catecholaminergic transmission, suggesting that the links between COMTActivity and PFC function can be modeled in rats and may be specifically mediated by DA.
Role of the medial prefrontal cortex in 5‐HT1A receptor‐induced inhibition of 5‐HT neuronal activity in the rat
Both transection of the frontal cortex as well as ablation of the medial region of the prefrontal cortex significantly attenuated the inhibition of 5‐ HT neurones induced by systemic administration of the 5‐HT1A receptor agonist, 8‐OH‐DPAT (0.5–16 μg kg−1, i.v.) in all neurones tested.

A dissociation was found between the neurotransmitter systems involved in different types of cost-benefit decision making, while dopaminergic systems were required for decisions about both effort and delay, and serotonergic Systems were only needed for the latter.
