Production of serotonin (5-HT) in the hypothalamus after the lesion of raphe nuclei. Control rats, with sham operation (Sham) or lesion induced by the injection of 5,6-Dihydroxytryptamine (5,6DHT) into the dorsal (DRN) or medial (MRN) raphe nucleus and sacrificed at 45 or 65 days of age; a anterior hypothalamus; b medial hypothalamus. Values are mean ± s.e.m. a, P < 0.05 vs. Control group; b, P < 0.05 vs. Sham DRN; c, P < 0.05 vs. Sham MRN, Tukey test
