      Modafinil is currently used as a treatment for daytime sleepiness.The objectives of this study were to explore the dopamine transporter (DAT)-related effects of modafinil on behavior and in vivo neurochemistry in rhesus ...

    • Effects of the serotonin 2C receptor agonist WAY163909 on the abuse-related effects and mesolimbic dopamine neurochemistry induced by abused stimulants in rhesus monkeys 

      Berro, Lais F. [UNIFESP]; Diaz, Maylen Perez; Maltbie, Eric; Howell, Leonard L. (Springer, 2017)
      Accumulating evidence shows that the serotonergic system plays a major role in psychostimulant abuse through its interactions with the dopaminergic system. Studies indicate that serotonin 5-HT2C receptors are one of the ...

    • Lateral hypothalamic serotonin is not stimulated during central leptin hypophagia 

      Telles, Monica Marques [UNIFESP]; Silva, Thais Girão da [UNIFESP]; Watanabe, Regina Lucia Harumi [UNIFESP]; Andrade, Iracema Senna de [UNIFESP]; Estadella, Debora [UNIFESP]; Nascimento, Claudia Maria da Penha Oller do [UNIFESP]; Oyama, Lila Missae [UNIFESP]; Ribeiro, Eliane Beraldi [UNIFESP] (Elsevier B.V., 2013-06-10)
      Whether leptin targets the hypothalamic serotonergic system to inhibit food intake is not established. We examined the effect of a short-term i.c.v. leptin treatment on serotonin microdialysate levels in rat lateral ...
