Abstract
Serotonin (5-HT) has been proposed to promote neuronal plasticity during the treatment of mood and anxiety disorders and following
neurodegenerative insult by altering the expression of critical genes including brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). In this study, mice
with constitutive reductions in the serotonin transporter (SERT) or BDNF were investigated to further assess the functional relationship between
