Functional Interactions between the Serotonergic and the Dopaminergic System in Female Rats Exposed to the Forced Swim Test
MetadataShow full item record
Modulation of the functioning of several neurotransmitters by gonadal hormones such as estrogen and progesterone are thought to contribute to femalesnull enhanced vulnerability to mood disorders. We evaluated the effects of hormones on the functioning of the 5-HT3 and D2 receptors (both of which are involved in mood disorders), using the forced swim test (FST).
