- Anandamide induces overeating: mediation by central cannabinoid (CB1) receptors. Williams, Claire M.; Kirkham, T. C. // Psychopharmacology;1999, Vol. 143 Issue 3, p315

- Reduced satiating effect of d-fenfluramine in serotonin 5-HT[sub 2C] receptor mutant mice. Vickers, Steven P.; Clifton, Peter G.; Dourish, Colin T.; Tecott, Laurence H. // Psychopharmacology;1999, Vol. 143 Issue 3, p309
Abstract Rationale: d-Fenfluramine stimulates the release of serotonin (5-HT) and is a potent inhibitor of the re-uptake of 5-HT into nerve terminals. Administration of d-fenfluramine suppresses food intake in both animals and humans. Objective: We have investigated the role of the 5-HT[sub 2C]...
