In previous studies, we showed that light-induced Fos protein expression in the ventrolateral SCN is markedly inhibited by the nonselective serotonergic, quipazine. The present experiments were undertaken to characterize the effects of various serotonin (5-HT) receptor ligands on photic signalling in the SCN. The extent of expression of light-induced Fos-like immunoreactivity (Fos-LI) in the SCN was used as a marker for this response. Exposure of hamsters to a light pulse delivered during the… CONTINUE READING
