The purpose of this review is to describe the consequences of antidepressant treatment on the behaviour of rodents after activation of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) receptor subtypes. In a summary table, the involvement of 5-HT receptors in inducing behavioural changes are described. It is emphasized that these effects are not always only exclusively linked to serotonergic functions nor that they are only initiated by central 5-HT receptors. Hereafter, the complex mutual inhibitory… CONTINUE READING
