The findings suggest that low brain serotonin versus dopamine selectively impairs memory performance in humans, and may shed light on the role of these neurotransmitters in disorders that are characterized by significant memory impairment.

It is suggested that when examining the melatonin sensitivity of patient groups to artificial light, an appropriate light intensity should be established in each laboratory, and light of less intensity may be more suitable to dichotomize patient groups from control subjects.
A double-blind placebo-controlled randomised pilot study of nocturnal melatonin in tracheostomised patients.
Melatonin is well absorbed, and a standard dose increases blood levels approximately 1000-fold, however, in this pilot assessment, these high levels failed to increase observed nocturnal sleep or induce other observable benefits in tracheostomised ICU patients.

It is demonstrated that olanzapine passes into breast milk, as with other antipsychotic drugs, and the long-term effects of exposure in infants exposed to olanZapine requires further investigation.

Overnight human plasma melatonin, Cortisol, prolactin, TSH, under conditions of normal sleep, sleep deprivation, and sleep recovery

It appears that the pineal is insulated against feedback from changes to the level of arousal accompanying sleep and wakefulness, and Cortisol, prolactin, and TSH levels vary with these states and are, therefore, useful indices of arousal and sleep‐wake.
