Zimelidine, a relatively specific 5-hydroxytryptamine reuptake blocker, attenuates the impairing effects of ethanol on learning and memory. The findings provide a potential basis for treatment of ethanol-related disorders and also points to the role of the serotonin system in mediating aspects of information processing in man. 
Dietary tryptophan reverses alcohol-induced impairment of facial recognition but not verbal recall.
The present study demonstrates that alcohol-induced memory impairment can be attenuated by pretreatment with an oral tryptophan supplementation. These results provide support for the role of a brainExpand
Specific memory and sedative effects of the benzodiazepine triazolam
TLDR
The pattern of memory changes induced by benzodiazepines, such as triazolam, is similar to the memory inpairment expressed in amnestic patients but unlike the pattern of impaired memory evident in dementia such as Alzheimer's disease. Expand
Dissociations in the expression of the sedative effects of triazolam
TLDR
Differences in performance of the two tests of sedation indicated that the effect of this drug on reflective processes accounts for impairment in episodic memory and the inability to track the sedative effects of thisDrug at the higher doses tested in this study. Expand

TLDR
Research is reviewed on several promising medications influencing neurotransmitter and endocrine systems with particular attention to the serotonergic and opioid systems that may curb drinking behavior. Expand
Fluoxetine and 8-OH-DPAT in the lateral septum enhances and impairs retention of an inhibitory avoidance response in rats
TLDR
Findings altogether support the notion that the lateral septal nuclei of rats are involved in the memory processes of inhibitory avoidance learning and postsynaptic 5HT receptor activation (not the 5HT2 receptor subtype) probably exerts a facilitatory effect while presynaptic5HT1A receptor activation exerts an impairing effect on the memory consolidation process. Expand
Acute kinetic and dynamic interactions of zimelidine with ethanol
TLDR
E‐induced impairments in memory, body sway, and a manual tracking task were further enhanced by Z, as was the E‐induced decrease in friendliness, suggesting a mechanism whereby Z may decrease E intake in man. Expand
Portacaval anastomosis attenuates the impairing effect of cyproheptadine on avoidance learning in rats — An involvement of the serotonergic system
TLDR
The present results suggest that memory formation is a time-requiring process and is mediated by the central serotonergic mechanism. Expand
Tryptophan depletion in normal volunteers produces selective impairments in learning and memory
TLDR
Computerized tests of memory, learning and executive function revealed selective and non-sedative impairments on cognitive performance following the active drink, supporting instead a specific role for the serotonergic system in the processes of memory and learning not directly implicated in frontal lobe function. Expand
Chronic ethanol inhibits rat hippocampal “stimulus-secretion” coupling mechanism for 5-hydroxytryptamine in vitro
TLDR
It is indicated that chronic ethanol treatment may decrease serotonergic neurotransmission in selective brain regions through inhibition in “stimulus-secretion” coupling mechanism. Expand
Ethanol interactions with serotonin uptake selective and non‐selective antidepressants: Fluoxetine and amitriptyline
TLDR
Ethanol dose does not interact importantly with clinically relevant doses of fluoxetine or low doses of amitriptyline administered chronically, and the deleterious effects of ethanol on memory, manual tracking, body sway, intoxication and sedation were not modified. Expand

Effects of vasopressin on human memory functions.
TLDR
Cognitively unimpaired, as well as cognitively impaired adults, treated with DDAVP for a period of several days, learn information more effectively, as measured by the completeness, organization, and consistency of recall. Expand
Peptide--neurotransmitter interactions influencing ethanol tolerance.
TLDR
The centrally mediated effects of arginine vasopressin on memory processes may be related to the hormone-induced prolongation of ethanol tolerance, in comparison to animals exposed to ethanol but not to the hormones. Expand
Antagonism of ethanol narcosis by thyrotropin releasing hormone.
TLDR
The ability of TRH to reduce the actions of ethanol after intracisternal injection suggests that the mechanism of the ethanol antagonism is central in origin and the antagonism of ethanol by TRH does not appear to be related to an amphetamine-like stimulant action. Expand
The pharmacology of zimelidine: A 5‐HT selective reuptake inhibitor
TLDR
It is concluded that ZIM markedly differs front both the TAD's and new antidepressants such as mianserin and nomifensine while having a negligible action on noradrenergic, 5‐HT, acetylcholine and histamine receptors in the brain. Expand
Effect of modification of brain serotonin (5-HT) on ethanol tolerance.
TLDR
The hypothesis that brain 5-HT has a modulating role in the development of tolerance to ethanol is supported, as seen in both measures. Expand
Acquisition and retrieval of information in amphetamine-treated hyperactive children
TLDR
There was no evidence of poorer retrieval of information learned in a state different from the retrieval state and the lack of dissociative effects when information is learned and recalled under different drug conditions suggests that what the stimulant-treated child learns can be effectively recovered after completion of treatment.
