The influence of oxytocin on the steady-state level and accumulation of serotonin in rat brain regions.

Abstract

The effects of graded amounts of centrally injected [intracerebroventricular, i.c.v.] oxytocin [OXT] have been studied on the steady-state level and pargyline-induced accumulation of serotonin [5-HT] in the hypothalamus, mesencephalon and dorsal hippocampus of rats. OXT only weakly affected the steady-state level of 5-HT. The pargyline-induced accumulation… (More)
