Antidepressant and antipsychotic agents

Die Naturwissenschaften
R A Lahti


Numerous studies have been reviewed concerning the relationship of the catecholamines and indoleamines to depression and its treatment with antidepressant drugs. The profusion of data on the subject suggests the amines may be implicated in the disease, however no convincing hypothesis is available which unites the two. A similar situation seems to exist concerning the antipsychotic agents, dopamine and schizophrenia. The evidence appears to be overwhelming relating dopamine in the action of these agents and yet serious inconsistencies have been reported suggesting the need for a revision of the hypothesis regarding the mode of action of antipsychotic agents.

Adrenergic Receptors: Trafficking

Adrenergic receptor trafficking is an active physiological process where adrenergic receptors are relocated from one region of the cell to another or from one type of cell to another. Discover the latest research on adrenergic receptor trafficking here.
