Serotonin is also important in regulating emotions, cognitive functions, appetite, pain, circadian rhythms, and our endocrine system in adulthood. It is hardly a surprise then, that the serotonergic system seems. From the reviews: “This book reviews the expansion of our understanding of cannabinoid modulation of monoaminergic circuits and their interactions in a variety of psychiatric and neurological disorders. intended for readers familiar with both clinical and preclinical research in this area, including individuals at all research, educational, and clinical levels interested in issues.
