MicroPET imaging of 5-HT1A receptors in rat brain: a test-retest [F-18]MPPF study

Purpose Earlier studies have shown that positron emission tomography (PET) imaging with the radioligand [F-18] MPPF allows for measuring the binding potential of serotonin 5-hydroxytryptamine(1A) (5-HT1A) receptors in different regions of animal and human brain, including that of 5-HT1A autoreceptors in the raphe nuclei. In the present study, we sought to determine if such data could be obtained in rat, with a microPET (R4, Concorde Microsystems).
