By Samuel S. Wang, Stephen J. Peroutka (auth.), Elaine Sanders-Bush (eds.)

Serotonin (5-HT) was once remoted and chemically characterised approximately 4 a long time in the past, and is now typically permitted to operate as a neurotransmitter and neuromodulatory agent. Early examine all for the dimension of concentrations, synthesis, and metabolism of 5-HT, and just recently has the point of interest shifted to characterization of 5-HT receptors. Gaddum and Picarelli first sug­ gested in 1957 that the influence of 5-HT within the guinea pig ileum is mediated through pharmacologically distinguishable receptors; in spite of the fact that, the potential of dual5-HT receptors used to be now not explored systematically or effectively till the prior decade. it truly is now transparent that extra, maybe many extra, subclasses of 5-HT receptors exist. the aim of this booklet is to supply an updated record on 5-HT receptors. it is a tough activity contemplating the fantastic velocity at which examine during this box is increasing. because the first of what we will count on to be a gradual move of monographs concentrating on 5-HT receptors, the booklet confirms that we're in an exhilarating time within the heritage of 5-HT. For these people who've been paintings­ ing on 5-HT for a few years, our dream of equivalent development and popularity with the extra commonly studied catecholamines is ultimately being learned. now we have a Serotonin membership that held its first foreign medical assembly in 1987, and several other extra overseas conferences are within the making plans stages.
