Effects of ST1936, a selective serotonin-6 agonist, on electrical activity of putative mesencephalic dopaminergic neurons in the rat brain
TLDR
In-vivo electrophysiological studies investigate the physiological role of 5-HT6 receptors in the control of the function of the substantia nigra pars compacta and ventral tegmental area of anesthetised rats and demonstrate the need for further investigations into the use of 4- HT6 receptor agonists to control cognitive disfunction.
The 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin) receptor 6 agonist EMD 386088 ameliorates ketamine-induced deficits in attentional set shifting and novel object recognition, but not in the prepulse inhibition in rats
TLDR
The beneficial effects of the 5-HT6 agonist in ameliorating some of the ketamine-induced deficits relevant to schizophrenia seem likely to represent a useful pharmacological approach to the treatment of cognitive disturbances observed in this disorder.
Study of a mechanism responsible for potential antidepressant activity of EMD 386088, a 5-HT6 partial agonist in rats
TLDR
Behavioral data seem to confirm the importance of dopaminergic system activation in antidepressant-like activity of EMD386088, since this effect, observed in the FST, was abolished by the preferential D1- and D2-like receptor subfamily antagonists SCH23390 and sulpiride, respectively.
Antidepressant-like activity of EMD 386088, a 5-HT6 receptor partial agonist, following systemic acute and chronic administration to rats
TLDR
The obtained findings suggest that EMD 386088 produces antidepressant-like activity after systemic acute and chronic administration which may result from direct stimulation of 5-HT6 receptors.

TLDR
The data indicate that the neurochemical effects induced by NA and/or5-HT reuptake inhibitors are not enhanced by 5-HT6 receptor blockade indicating that 5- HT6 receptor antagonists are unlikely to augment the therapeutic efficacy of these types of antidepressants.
Neuropharmacological Profile of Novel and Selective 5-HT6 Receptor Agonists: WAY-181187 and WAY-208466
TLDR
The pharmacological and neurochemical characterization of two novel and selective 5-HT6 receptor agonists reveal a potential therapeutic role for this receptor in the treatment of some types of anxiety-related disorders (eg OCD) and highlight a previously undescribed role for 5- HT6 receptors to modulate basal GABA and stimulated glutamate transmission.
In vivo effects of the 5‐HT6 antagonist SB‐271046 on striatal and frontal cortex extracellular concentrations of noradrenaline, dopamine, 5‐HT, glutamate and aspartate
TLDR
The neurochemical effects of a selective 5‐HT6 receptor ligand are demonstrated for the first time using in vivo microdialysis in the freely moving rat by simultaneous measurement of 5‐hydroxytryptamine (5‐HT), dopamine, dopamine, noradrenaline, glutamate and aspartate from the striatum and frontal cortex.
5‐HT6 receptor antagonist SB‐271046 enhances extracellular levels of monoamines in the rat medial prefrontal cortex
TLDR
The results of the present study support the rationale for the use of 5‐HT6 receptor antagonists in the treatment of cognitive dysfunction associated with psychiatric diseases.
E-6801, a 5-HT6 receptor agonist, improves recognition memory by combined modulation of cholinergic and glutamatergic neurotransmission in the rat
TLDR
This is the first study to demonstrate that E-6801, a potent 5-HT6 receptor agonist, improves recognition memory by combined modulation of cholinergic and glutamatergic neurotransmission.
Activation of 5-HT6 receptors facilitates attentional set shifting
TLDR
Through use of a novel 5-HT agonist, these experiments reveal a previously unrecognised role for 5-hydroxytryptamine activation in PFC-dependent executive function, mediated by 5- HT6 receptor activation.
