increased firing with abnormal patterns in SNr GABA neurons and eventually motor deficits. In contrast, under several other conditions, the 5-HT receptors in STN neurons may be over-stimulated. For example, selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors used to treat depression and other disorders and the abusive drugs cocaine and 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) block 5-HT reuptake (Setola et al., 2003; Torres et al., 2003; Ben-Daniel et al., 2008). Thus, upon administration of SSRIs, cocaine or MDMA, the ambient 5-HT level is increased in the STN and its target brain

Neurosci. 2012; 23(5-6): 543–553 Alfredo Meneses* and Gustavo Liy-Salmeron Serotonin and emotion, learning and memory Abstract: Serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamien, 5-HT) has been linked to emotional and motivational aspects of human behavior, including anxiety, depression, impulsivity, etc. Several clinically effective drugs exert effects via 5-HT systems. Growing evidence suggests that those effects play an important role in learning and memory. Whether the role of serotonin is related to memory and/or behavio

activities of the worm and is thus the main target when new anti-parasitic drugs are developed. The distribution and function of different neurotransmitters have been investigated in numerous helminth groups ( Terenina & Gustafsson, 2003 , 2014 ). Nematodes have been extensively studied particularly in Caenorhabditis elegans ( Chase & Koelle, 2007 ). A wide range of signaling molecules, including the bioamine serotonin (5-HT), has been identified. A variety of experimental approaches, including immunocytochemical ones, have revealed 5-HT in 8 classes of neurons in C

Health (NSDUH) reported over 2000 young people who presented to the emergency departments across the country, and reported MDMA as a major factor in their visit (6). Notably, the incidence of prescription drug use among these populations remains unknown; it is likely that a greater incidence of fatality occurred among individuals receiving medications for a psychiatric morbidity, such as the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRI) class, which potentiates the adverse effects of serotonin elevation. SSRI therapy is both widespread and rising in adolescents and

” would be the acute worsening of a psychiatric disorder, or an acute psychosocial crisis. Many other factors would affect the diathesis, such as sex, religion, and cholesterol (5). The neurobiological correlates of the stressors and the diathesis involve neurochemical (serotonin, norepinephrine, and dopamine), neuroendocrine systems [e.g., hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis or (HPA axis)], and neuroanatomical abnormalities (6). Some other biological dysfunctions [e.g., deficits in the second messenger phosphoinositide (PI) and adenylyl cyclise (AC) systems] and
