Neuropharmacology will be publishing a Special Issue “Advances in Serotonin Research: Crossing scales and boundaries” with Professors Philippe De Deurwaerdere and Giuseppe Di Giovanni as Guest Editors.
Serotonin is an important chemical in the brain. It modulates neuronal and neuronal circuit activities and regulates mood, cognition and behavior. Dysfunctions of the serotonergic system are associated with various brain disorders. Recent research using advanced technologies have revealed additional levels of heterogeneity and complexity in the serotonergic system, hence presenting new challenges to research and therapy. This Special Issue aims to bring together experimental researchers that work across different scales of the serotonergic system to address these challenges. In this Special Issue, we also aim to summarize the current status of research into the underlying disease etiopathogenesis and the development of novel strategies to enhance diagnosis, predict prognosis and improve treatment of serotonin disorders.
In addition to the review articles listed below, the Special Issue will also include original papers. All papers will be subject to normal rigorous peer review and must comply with theGuide for Authors.
