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.
