  • Information


The serotonin 5-HT6 receptor represents a novel pharmacological target whose impact on physiopathology of CNS functions remains undetermined.

Some receptor antagonists have been synthesized and they show a modulatory role in learning and memory processes and food intake.

The pharmacology of 5-HT6 receptor agonists is still under evaluation.

However, both 5-HT6 antagonists and agonists seem to exert potential antidepressant activity.

Recently, a second messenger system has been discovered. 5-HT6 receptor function is becoming more and more intriguing.

Thus, the aim of the present book is to try to clarify the pharmacology of 5-HT6 receptors.
