Serotonin (5-HT) neuroendocrine tests are a valid and acceptable means of measuring 5-HT neurotransmission in humans. Recently, the availability of selective 5-HT receptor ligands has allowed the assessment of specific 5-HT receptor subtype function using neuroendocrine methods. Studies with selective antagonists have shown that the endocrine responses to the 5-HT precursor L-tryptophan (LTP) are mediated via postsynaptic 5-HT1A receptors, whereas endocrine responses produced by the 5-HT… CONTINUE READING
