5-HT2A and 5-HT2C Serotonin Receptors Differentially Modulate Mouse Sexual Arousal and the Hypothalamo-Pituitary-Testicular Response to the Presence of a Female

The present findings suggest that 5-HT2A/5- HT2C receptors may be involved in the neural control of male sexual motivation and arousal, presumably by exerting reciprocal facilitative or suppressive influences in the control of sexual behavior and plasma testosterone levels.

5-HT1A receptor as a key player in the brain 5-HT system

Abstract Among an impressive variety of identified serotonin receptors, 5-HT1A attracts particular attention due to its central role in the regulation of 5-HT-ergic neurotransmission and the data on

Polymorphism of Serotonin 5-HT Receptors as the Basis of the Multifunctionality of Serotonin

Evidence is provided that different types of 5-HT receptors can act in different directions as well as similarly, supplementing each other, in the control of physiological functions and behavior, and Interaction of receptors evidently underlies neuroplasticity and plays a significant role in compensatory processes and in adaptive mechanisms.

Effect of corticosterone and paroxetine on masculine mating behavior: possible involvement of neurogenesis.

It is suggested that cell proliferation in the SVZ and hippocampus may be involved in the reproduction of the male rodents, and pharmacological treatments may affect sexual functioning through alteration of neurogenesis.

Implications of Cannabis sativa on serotonin receptors 1B (HTR1B) and 7 (HTR7) genes in modulation of aggression and depression

C. sativa alters the expression of HTR1B and HTR7 and accounts for the mechanism through which users exhibit depression/aggression attributes, as well as modulation of cognitive ability.

Serotonin Inhibits Luteinizing Hormone Release via 5-HT1A Receptors in the Zona incerta of Ovariectomised, Anaesthetised Rats Primed with Steroids

The zona incerta (ZI), an area in the dorsal hypothalamus, contains neuronal systems that appear to control gonadotropin release, and it is shown that 2 µg/side 5-HT in the ZI inhibits the LH surge that normally occurs 4 h after the progesterone treatment.

A review of central 5-HT receptors and their function

International Union of Pharmacology classification of receptors for 5-hydroxytryptamine (Serotonin).

It is evident that in the last decade or so, a vast amount of new information has become available concerning the various 5-HT receptor types and their characteristics, and it is important to rationalise in concert all of the available data from studies involving both operational approaches of the classical pharmacological type and those from molecular and cellular biology.
