The effect of predator exposure on brain serotonin utilization was studied in bicolour damselfish (Pomacentrus partitus). Predator exposure (lasting 2 h), which took place in an aquarium where a transparent wall separated the damselfish from the predator (a graysby, Epinephelus cruentatus), resulted in increased concentrations of 5-hydroxyindoleacetic acid (5-HIAA, the main serotonin metabolite) and 1.6-1.8 fold elevations of 5-HIAA/serotonin ratios (an index of serotonergic activity) in… CONTINUE READING
