5-HT6 Receptors

Serotonin 5-HT6 receptors are located primarily in the striatum, olfactory tubercles, nucleus accumbens and hippocampus. Functions of 5-HT6 receptors include modulation of cholinergic and dopaminergic neurotransmission, and a role in spatial learning and memory.

Serotonin 5-HT6 receptors are located primarily in the striatum, olfactory tubercles, nucleus accumbens and hippocampus. Functions of 5-HT6 receptors include modulation of cholinergic and dopaminergic neurotransmission, and they have a role in spatial learning and memory. The human 5-HT6 receptor gene has been localized to chromosome 1 (1p35-36).
