Serotonin Depletion Induces ‘Waiting Impulsivity’ on the Human Four-Choice Serial Reaction Time Task: Cross-Species Translational Significance


Convergent results from animal and human studies suggest that reducing serotonin neurotransmission promotes impulsive behavior. Here, serotonin depletion was induced by the dietary tryptophan depletion procedure (TD) in healthy volunteers to examine the role of serotonin in impulsive action and impulsive choice. We used a novel translational analog of a… (More)
