The 5-hydroxytryptamine (serotonin; 5-HT) agonists, RU-24969 [5-methoxy 3-(1,2,3,6-tetrahydro-4-pyridinyl)1H-indole, succinate], ipsapirone [2-(4-[4-(2-pyrimidinyl)-1-piperazinyl]butyl)-1,2- benzisothiazol-3-(2H)one-1,1-dioxidehydrochloride], 8-hydroxy-N,N-dipropyl-2-aminotetralin, lysergic acid diethylamide, fenfluramine and N,N-dimethyltryptamine were studied in pigeons trained to discriminate quipazine (1.0 mg/kg) from saline and in pigeons trained to discriminate I-5-HTP (18.0 mg/kg) from… 
The 5-HT3 agent N-(3-chlorophenyl)guanidine (MD-354) serves as a discriminative stimulus in rats and displays partial agonist character in a shrew emesis assay
Results indicate that MD-354 is a 5-HT3 agonist and that it might be an agent with partial agonist activity.
5-Hydroxytryptamine (Serotonin)2A Receptors in Rat Anterior Cingulate Cortex Mediate the Discriminative Stimulus Properties of d-Lysergic Acid Diethylamide
Data indicate that 5-HT2A receptors in the ACC are a primary target mediating the discriminative stimulus properties of LSD.
Complex stimulus properties of LSD: a drug discrimination study with α2-adrenoceptor agonists and antagonists
The present data show that this cue can be modulated by effects of LSD at 5-HT1A and at other monoamine neurotransmitter receptors.
Discriminative stimulus characteristics of BMY 14802 in the pigeon.
The results indicate that the discriminative stimulus effects of BMY 14802 are serotonergically mediated primarily by 5-HT1A receptors rather than by sigma sites.
Complex discriminative stimulus properties of (+)lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in C57Bl/6J mice
These data suggest that in mice the stimulus effects of LSD have both a 5-HT2A receptor and a5-HT1A receptor component, which is significantly different from that in rats.
Discriminative stimulus effects of serotonin agonists, neutral antagonists, and inverse agonists in pigeons: perspectives on intrinsic efficacy measurements in vivo
The data and the subsequent analyses suggest that the discriminative cues of MK212, methysergide, and mianserin are different and that the drug discrimination paradigm is a useful functional assay to examine intrinsic efficacy in vivo.
Role of Serotoninergic Neurons and 5-HT Receptors in the Action of Hallucinogens
Brain serotonin receptors and serotoninergic pathways have received increasing attention as targets for a wide variety of therapeutic agents, but the so-called hallucinogenic drugs, which presently lack demonstrated therapeutic utility, still remain pharmacological curiosities.
Mechanisms of aggression and production in chickens: genetic variations in the functions of serotonin, catecholamine, and corticosterone
The results suggest that genetic selection for productivity and survivability with domestic behaviours alters the birds' neuroendocrine homeostasis.
Effects of group selection for productivity and longevity on blood concentrations of serotonin, catecholamines, and corticosterone of laying hens.
The results suggest that selection for group productivity and survivability alters the chickens' neuroendocrine homeostasis, and these changes may correlate with its line-unique coping ability to domestic environments and Survivability.
