Presynaptic CB(1) cannabinoid receptors control frontocortical serotonin and glutamate release--species differences.

Both the serotonergic and endocannabinoid systems modulate frontocortical glutamate release; thus they are well positioned to participate in the pathogenesis of psychiatric disorders. With the help of fluorescent and confocal microscopy, we localized the CB(1) cannabinoid receptor (CB(1)R) in VGLUT1- and 2- (i.e. glutamatergic) and serotonin transporter- (i… CONTINUE READING
