The serotonin pathways in depression

Serotonin transmission from both the caudal raphe nuclei and rostal raphe nuclei is reduced in patients with depression compared with non-depressed controls. Increasing the levels of serotonin in these pathways, by reducing serotonin reuptake and hence increasing serotonin function, is one of the therapeutic approaches to treating depression.
