Most antidepressant drugs help boost serotonin levels by blocking reabsorption (reuptake) of free serotonin in the brain. Blocking absorption increases serotonin levels, and is directly related to improved mood, reduced anxiety and decreased depression. These drugs form a class of antidepressants called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIS) and increase serotonin levels by reducing absorption - but they do nothing to create more serotonin. A great deal of research has been performed over the past two decades, focusing specifically on the chemical processes responsible for the production of serotonin. In 2002 the prestigious journal science announced that a breakthrough discovery had been made. A new set of light sensitive receptors in the eye were discovered, and surprisingly, these receptors are not used for vision. This intrinsically photosensitive retinal ganglion cells (IPRGCS), found in all vertebrates, was eventually linked directly to the production of serotonin, and the regulation of melatonin and other ...
