In addition, manipulation of 5-HT during early development produces a reduction of tryptophan hydroxylase expression in midline subgroups of the raphe nuclear complex and a reduction in the density of Serotonin immunoreactive fibers in cortex (Weaver et al., 2010), and disturbs characteristic chemoarchitectural and electrophysiological brain features, including changes in raphe and callosal connections, sensory processing, and myelin sheath formation (Simpson et al., 2011).
