Serotonin (5-HT) and 5-HT agonists act on multiple 5-HT receptor subtypes to increase corticosterone secretion. The present experiments describe the effects of a highly selective 5-HT2 receptor agonist DOI [(+-)-1-(2,5-dimethoxy-4-iodophenyl)-2-aminopropane HCl] on plasma corticosterone in conscious, unrestrained, male rats with indwelling arterial and… CONTINUE READING
