    Monoamine-oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs), however, irreversibly block the enzyme monoamine oxidase, which, in turn, reduces the breakdown of serotonin, noradrenaline and dopamine. Mirtazapine is an alpha 2 -adrenoreceptor antagonist that increases noradrenaline and serotonin transmission by reducing the action of the alpha 2 -adrenoreceptor. Monoamine oxidase A deficiency is a rare disorder that occurs almost exclusively in males. It is characterized by mild intellectual disability and behavioral problems beginning in early childhood. Most boys with monoamine oxidase A deficiency are less able to control their impulses than their peers, causing aggressive or violent outbursts. In addition, affected individuals may have features of.

TThe monoamine hypothesis of depression predicts that the underlying pathophysiologic basis of depression is a depletion in the levels of serotonin, norepinephrine, and/or dopamine in the central nervous system. This hypothesized pathophysiology appears to be supported by the mechanism of action of antidepressants: agents that elevate the.

Management of depressions with monoamine. Management of depression with serotonin precursors. van Praag HM. 5-HT precursors are used in depressions on the basis of the 5-HT hypothesis--a hypothesis which postulates that a cerebral 5-HT deficiency can play a role in the pathogenesis of depressions.

The current biological theories of depression are united in postulating a role for brain monoamine deficiency in this group of disorders.

Monoamine neurotransmitters are neurotransmitters and neuromodulators that contain one amino group connected to an aromatic ring by a two-carbon chain (such as -CH 2-CH 2-).Examples are dopamine, serotonin and epinephrine.

All monoamines are derived from aromatic amino acids like phenylalanine, tyrosine, and tryptophan by the action of aromatic amino acid decarboxylase enzymes.

image by Patrick Hoesly Lots of research has been done on the causes of depression. We are now going to have a brief discussion of the many biological, psychological and social factors that have been identified as being related to major depressive disorder.

The main limitation for the monoamine hypothesis of depression is the therapeutic lag between initiation of antidepressant treatment and perceived improvement of symptoms.

One explanation for this therapeutic lag is that the initial increase in synaptic serotonin is only temporary, as firing of serotonergic neurons in the dorsal raphe adapt via. Central Monoamine Metabolism in Depressions.
