  • The 5-HT3 receptor is a ligand-gated ion channel activated by the neurotransmitter serotonin. Receptors of this subtype have been localized to several regions of the brain, and appear to be involved in many neuronal functions including responses to alcohol and other drugs of abuse. There is an extensive and growing literature indicating that 5-HT3 receptors are involved in several facets of alcohol seeking behavior, alcohol intoxication and addiction. In addition, there is strong evidence that… CONTINUE READING
