5-HT2A and 5-HT2C receptors exert opposing effects on locomotor activity in mice
TLDR
Data indicate that the decrease in locomotor activity induced by 10 mg/kg DOI is mediated by 5-HT2C receptors, an interpretation that is supported by the finding that the selective 5- HT2C agonist WAY 161,503 produces reductions in the locomotory activity that are potentiated in 5HT2A KO mice.
Behavioral arrest and a characteristic slow waveform are hallmark responses to selective 5-HT2A receptor activation
TLDR
The results suggest that in addition to the HTR, behavioral arrest and characteristic meso level slow waveforms are key hallmarks of the response to 5-HT 2A R activation.
The Chronic Treatment With 5-HT2A Receptor Agonists Affects the Behavior and the BDNF System in Mice.
TLDR
It is shown for the first time that the chronic activation of the 5-HT2A receptor with agonists has affected the BDNF system almost on all levels-transcription, proBDNF production, TrkB and p75NTR receptors' level.
A Non-Hallucinogenic Psychedelic Analog with Therapeutic Potential
TLDR
This work demonstrates that, through careful chemical design, it is possible to modify a psychedelic compound to produce a safer, non-hallucinogenic variant that has therapeutic potential.
