    Objective: To examine the effects of short-term valproate treatment on human brain serotonin and dopamine function by means of challenge tests with ipsapirone, a partial agonist at 5-HT[sub IA] receptors, and apomorphine, a dopamine receptor agonist. Design: Experimental challenge-rechallenge,...

    Prepulse inhibition (PPI) of the startle reflex can be disrupted by drugs that act as agonists at the serotonin (5-HT) 2A receptor, such as DOI, and this effect is blocked by drugs that inhibit 5-HT2A transmission. We tested the effects of systemic administration of PD149163, a neurotensin...

    Rationale: Cariprazine is a novel antipsychotic drug candidate that exhibits high selectivity and affinity to dopamine D and D receptors and moderate affinity to serotonin 5-HT receptors. Targeting receptors other than D may provide a therapeutic benefit for both positive and negative symptoms...
