      Secreted hormones

      • Hormone: NRG-1

        • NRG-1 expression was also being present in putative serotonergic neurons of the raphe and dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra, indicating that NRG-1 expression is not limited to any particular neurotransmitter-defined class of neurons. [1]
      • Hormone: dopamine

        Influenced by:

        • 5-HT-2C
          in corpus_striatum
          • Stimulate 5-HT-2C receptors localized within the striatum have an inhibitory controll of the dopamine release in the nitrostriatal pathway. [2]


      • Receptor: GABAA receptor
