In the past few years, the predominant focus of basic science and clinical investigations of serotonergic neurotransmission has been the many serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) receptors and their signal transduction mechanisms. In the past decade, the predominant focus of basic science and clinical investigations of serotonergic neurotransmission has been the many serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine, 5-HT) receptors and their signal transduction mechanisms. Some recent and other older, but still valuable, monographs and reviews should be consulted for coverage in depth of these and related issues.
