  • 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), dopamine, oxytocin and melanocortin pathways are known to be involved in the induction of penile erections in rats. Although a dopamine-oxytocin-5-HT link in the central nervous system has been suggested to be important to the control of penile erections, the 5-HT receptor subtype that mediates dopamine-oxytocin-5-HT action and the relationship between the dopamine-oxytocin-5-HT pathway and melanocortin pathway have not been fully elucidated. In this study, in order… CONTINUE READING
