Progesterone level predicts serotonin-1a receptor binding in the male human brain.


BACKGROUND Progesterone (P) is thought to influence mood and affective states. Alterations of the inhibitory serotonin-1A (5-HT(1A)) receptor distribution are associated with depression and anxiety. This study evaluates the influence of plasma P levels on the 5-HT(1A) receptor binding in healthy male subjects. METHODS Molecular neuroimaging of the 5-HT(1A… (More)
