In the brain, oxygen is required for both the synthesis and the degradation of monoamine transmitters, so monoaminergic systems can be expected to be strongly affected by anoxia. However, crucian carp {Carassius carassius L.) may survive anoxia for many days or even weeks. In the present study, crucian carp were exposed to anoxia for 22, 76, and 160 h at 8°C. All survived and were found to excrete ethanol at a constant rate. The brain concentrations of serotonin and its two main metabolites, 5… CONTINUE READING
