Abstract The influence of induction of antibodies to the neuromediator serotonin in the case of active immunization of animals with a conjugate serotonin-protein antigen on the distribution of biogenic amines in the brain and on behavioral responses was investigated in experiments on rats. It was shown that active immunization of rats with a serotonin-protein conjugate leads to a decrease in serotonin, its metabolite 5-hydroxyindole-3-acetic acid, as well as dopamine in certain brain structures. Against a background of induction of antibodies to serotonin, the horizontal motor activity of the animals is decreased.
