A decrease in cholinergic activity and an increase in aminergic
activity are two main factors in the REM sleep suppression mechanism of antidepressant drugs (Costa e Silva 2006).
Post says: "I wonder about [their] mechanistic properties such as blockade of sodium channels and decreased release of glutamate, decreased calcium influx through the NMDA receptor, increases in potassium efflux, as well as a variety of aminergic
effects and effects on gene expression.
Not illustrated but germane to the course of alcohol addiction are modifying aminergic
(dopamine and norepinephrine), cholinergic, serotonergic, peptidergic, and hormonal influences on the various structures.
In view of the importance of aminergic
neurotransmitters in the regulation of various crustacean neurohormones, an attempt has been made to elucidate the modulatory effect of serotonin on moulting in the Indian freshwater field crab Oziotelphusa senex senex (Fabricius).
The paraventricular nucleus (PVN) and other brain nuclei were micro-dissected, and the concentrations of aminergic
neurotransmitters and their metabolites were measured using high-performance liquid chromatography with electrochemical detection.

Behavioral responses were examined and manipulated using aminergic
neurotransmitters/modulators, serotonin and octopamine.

The brain's chemical system that mediates our waking state is called the aminergic
Hyperforin is known to inhibit the uptake of aminergic
transmitters such as serotonin and noradrenaline into synaptic nerve endings (Kumar et al.
