- Neuron density and serotonin receptor binding in prefrontal cortex in suicideMark D Underwood
Department of Psychiatry, Columbia University, New York, NY 10032, USA
Int J Neuropsychopharmacol 15:435-47. 2012..Thus, abnormalities in both cortical neurons and in their serotonergic innervation are present in suicides and future studies will need to determine whether cortical changes reflect the trophic effect of altered serotonin innervation...

Department of Psychiatry, Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York State Psychiatric Institute, New York 10032, USA
Alcohol Clin Exp Res 32:593-9. 2008..We sought to determine postmortem whether 5-HT(2A) receptors are altered in the prefrontal cortex (PFC) of alcoholics...

Department of Biology, Columbia University and the New York State Psychiatric Institute, New York, NY 10032, USA
Science 313:536-40. 2006..These findings indicate a specific role for cortical 5HT2AR function in the modulation of conflict anxiety, consistent with models of cortical, "top-down" influences on risk assessment...
