Abstract

The level of serotonin has been measured in nuclei of the limbic system. Serotonin is unevenly distributed among these nuclei. High levels of serotonin were found in the medial forebrain bundle, the ventral tegmental area, the olfactory tubercle, the nucleus interstitialis striae terminalis, the nucleus interstitialis medullaris, and several nuclei of the amygdala.
