Electrophysiological effects of ethanol on monoaminergic neurons: an in vivo and in vitro study.
TLDR
The effect of ethanol on the monoaminergic neurons is specific of the type of neuron, and that a biphasic effect is commonly found.
Development of rapid tolerance to ethanol-stimulated serotonin release in the ventral hippocampus.
TLDR
The results suggest that acute ethanol activates the MRN 5-HT system projecting to the vHIP and that rapid tolerance develops to the activating effects of alcohol on this pathway.
Ethanol enhances the release of dopamine and serotonin in the nucleus accumbens of HAD and LAD lines of rats.
TLDR
The results indicate that (1) the ACC DA system is more sensitive than the ACC 5-HT system to intraperitoneal ethanol administration in both lines and (2) there is no evidence for a relationship between alcohol preference and sensitivity of the ACCDA and 5- HT systems to acute intra peritonealanol administration.
Current Trends Review Serotonin Mechanisms in Alcohol Drinking Behavior
TLDR
The data suggest that an innate 5-HT deficiency in certain limbic struc- tures of the P rat may be a major neurobiological factor underlying their high alcohol drinking characteristics.

Lysergic Acid Diethylamide: Sensitive Neuronal Units in the Midbrain Raphe
TLDR
An inhibition of neurons containing serotonin after administration of d-lysergic acid diethylamide could account for the decreased metabolism of serotonin produced by this drug.

TLDR
The present data indicate that cerebellar Purkinje cell activity was continuously affected for a few to several hours following a single dose of ethanol, compatible with behavioral observations that impaired coordination in acute ethanol intoxication also had a similar time course.
Action of psychotogenic drugs on single midbrain raphe neurons.
TLDR
The results indicate that the indole and phenethylamine psychotogens, which have similar effects on behavior, also have an overlapping although not identical effect on single units in the raphe nuclei.
