    Serotonin signaling mediates protein valuation and aging

    Jennifer Ro et al.
    Serotonin modulates diet-dependent lifespan in flies.

    Serotonin enhances excitability and gamma frequency temporal integration in mouse prefrontal fast-spiking interneurons

    Jegath C Athilingam et al.
    Serotonin changes passive membrane properties in prefrontal fast-spiking interneurons to affect not only neuronal excitability but also the temporal filtering of synaptic inputs with a preference for gamma-frequency summation.

    Inhibitory peptidergic modulation of C. elegans serotonin neurons is gated by T-type calcium channels

    Kara E Zang et al.
    Genetic analysis of how neuropeptides control C. elegans reproductive behavior shows how T-type calcium channels engage and disengage target neurons from these critical regulators of neural circuits and behavior.

    Chronic social isolation reduces 5-HT neuronal activity via upregulated SK3 calcium-activated potassium channels

    Derya Sargin et al.
    Serotonin neurons in chronically isolated mice become less responsive to excitatory stimulation, but inhibiting a distinctive calcium-activated potassium channel can restore both neuronal activity and behavior.

    Necdin shapes serotonergic development and SERT activity modulating breathing in a mouse model for Prader-Willi syndrome

    Valéry Matarazzo et al.
    Inhibition of serotonin transporter activity, by fluoxetine treatment, in early post-natal life induces persistent apnea in wild-type mice but restores normal breathing in Necdin-KO pups that reproduce breathing abnormalities observed in Prader-Willi syndrome.

    Lmx1b is required at multiple stages to build expansive serotonergic axon architectures

    Lauren J Donovan et al.
    A continuously expressed LIM HD factor, Lmx1b, acts at successive stages to orchestrate the progressive morphological maturation of a long-range profusely arborized neuromodulatory axonal projection pathway.

    High-resolution structures of multiple 5-HT3AR-setron complexes reveal a novel mechanism of competitive inhibition

    Sandip Basak et al.
    Cryo-electron microscopic structures of 5-HT3A receptor in complex with first and second generations of clinically used setron reveal the molecular basis for their binding modes and mechanisms of inhibitory action.

    AANAT1 functions in astrocytes to regulate sleep homeostasis

    Sejal Davla et al.
    Drosophila astrocytes regulate the homeostatic response to sleep need and express the AANAT1 enzyme that limits brain accumulation of serotonin and dopamine caused by overnight sleep deprivation.

    Serotonergic neurons signal reward and punishment on multiple timescales

    Jeremiah Y Cohen et al.
    Serotonin-releasing neurons show tonic firing-rate changes correlating with global reward value in addition to phasic firing-rate changes correlating with local task events.

    A single-cell transcriptomic and anatomic atlas of mouse dorsal raphe Pet1 neurons

    Benjamin W Okaty et al.
    Dorsal raphe Pet1 neurons are molecularly heterogeneous, comprising as many as fourteen distinct subtypes that show biased cell body distributions across dorsal raphe subdomains.
