: In chronic experiments on dogs, a reverse correlation was revealed between the level of positive salivary conditioning and the amount of serotonin in the blood. Administration of 0.2 and 0.4 mg of serotonin into the anterior limbic cortex enhanced conditioning in animals with high initial amount of serotonin in the blood and decreased it in animals with low amount of serotonin in the blood. Subcutaneous administration of serotonin in doses 0.5, 1.0, 2.0 and 5.0 mg/kg augmented the small…

Adaptogenic significance of serotonin in dogs emerging from experimental neurosis
TLDR
The results of this and the preceding investigation suggest that the intensification of the activity of the serotoninergic system in neurosis is one of the adaptogenic factors facilitating the overcoming of neurosis.
