Involvement of Serotonin 5-HT7 Receptors in Learning and Memory in Mice

It is concluded that blocking of 5-HT7 receptors could improve consolidation of the passive avoidance memory, but this procedure exerted no significant effects on acquisition and retrieval in the PA test.

Pharmacological Blockade of Serotonin 5-HT7 Receptor Reverses Working Memory Deficits in Rats by Normalizing Cortical Glutamate Neurotransmission

Results indicate that 5-HT7 receptor antagonists might reverse cognitive deficits associated with NMDA receptor hypofunction by selectively normalizing glutamatergic neurotransmission.

Major current questions include the paradox that 5-HT7 receptor agonists and antagonists in behavioral memory tasks are revealing promnesic and antiamnesic effects; 5- HT7 and5-HT1A receptors interaction, and neural markers associated to these cognitive processes and individual differences.

Serotonergic 5-HT7 receptors and cognition

The aim of this review is to clarify the behavioral role of the recently discovered 5-HT7 type receptor and highlight its involvement in the cognitive functions, with particular attention to the modulation of learning and memory processes, thus providing a basis to obtain new therapeutic agents and strategies for the treatment of cognitive disorders.

The 5‐HT7 receptor in learning and memory

The use of pharmacological and genetic tools in animal studies of learning and memory suggest a potentially important role for the 5‐HT7 receptor in cognitive processes.



5-HT1A receptors and memory

Analysis of the contribution of 5-HT, cholinergic and glutamatergic receptors as well as protein synthesis to STM and LTM of an autoshaping learning task indicates that '5-HT tone via 5- HT(1B) receptors' might function in a serial manner from STM to LTM, whereas working in parallel using 5-hydroxytryptamine receptors.

Results indicate that pharmacological manipulation of 5-HT1-7 receptors or5-HT reuptake sites might modulate memory consolidation, which is consistent with the emerging notion that 5- HT plays a key role in memory formation.

Role of serotonin in memory impairment

Converging evidence suggests that the administration of 5-HT2A/2C or 5- HT4 receptor agonists or5-HT1A or 5HT3 and 5-ht1B receptor antagonists prevents memory impairment and facilitates learning in situations involving a high cognitive demand.

5-HT1A receptor expression during memory formation

These data suggest that upregulated, downregulated, and “silence” of 5-HT1A receptors in brain areas form part of neural circuits engaged in memory formation by demonstrating a high degree of specificity and memory mapping.
