Abstract

KEY POINTS: Animal preparations have revealed that moderate synaptic release of serotonin (5-HT) onto motoneurones enhances motor activity via activation of 5-HT

ABSTRACT: Brief stimulation of the raphe-spinal pathway in the turtle spinal cord releases serotonin (5-HT) onto motoneurones to enhance excitability. However, intense release of 5-HT via prolonged stimulation results in 5-HT spillover to the motoneurone axon initial segment to activate inhibitory 5-HT
