Dorsomedial prefrontal cortex 5-HT6 receptors regulate anxiety-like behavior

Published in:┬áCognitive, Affective, & Behavioral Neuroscience, Volume 18, Issue 1, 58-67 Abstract “The dorsomedial prefrontal cortex (dmPFC) plays a very important role in decision-related and anxiety-related information processing. It has enriched 5-HT6 receptors; however, the precise role of dmPFC 5-HT6 receptors in anxiety remains to be fully investigated. In this study, we injected dmPFC with the 5-HT6 receptor agonist EMD 386088 and antagonist SB 271046 using stereotactic technology. 5-HT6 receptor activation in mice increased time spent in the center area on the open-field test, increased exploration of the open arms on the elevated plus maze test, and increased ratio on… Read More
