Overview

Modulating mood, appetite, sexual activity, body temperature, and sleep, serotonin has implications in numerous disease states, including depression, anxiety, social phobia, schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and panic disorder. Providing the first comprehensive book on the subject from a multidisciplinary perspective, Serotonin Receptors in Neurobiology is among the first books to be published after serotonin receptor knock-out studies. With contributions from leading experts in their fields, this book covers a range of topics from contemporary techniques in receptor research to fundamental interactions of the 5-HT receptors with the lipid bilayer to behavioral studies.
