Activation of central 5-HT(2A) receptor signaling and its subsequent alterations have been implicated in the pathophysiological response to stress and the pathogenesis of stress-associated psychiatric disorders. To further examine the association between alterations in central 5-HT(2A) receptor signaling and the occurrence of stress-induced psychiatric… CONTINUE READING
