Ketanserin-sensitive depressant actions of 5-HT receptor agonists in the neonatal rat spinal cord.

1. The monosynaptic reflex (MSR), recorded in vitro from the neonatal rat spinal cord, was depressed by 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), 5-carboxamidotryptamine (5-CT), methysergide and R(+)-8-hydroxy-2-(di-n-propylamino) tetralin (8-OH-DPAT), and also by the selective 5-HT1D agonists, sumatriptan and N-methyl-3-(1-methyl-1-piperidinyl)-1H-indole-5-ethane… CONTINUE READING
