proposed changes[edit]

Holy cow, this page is in major need of work. There is a lot of important information missing, and there is a lot of irrelevant or unimportant information included. I know a good deal about the dorsal raphe, but have never edited a Wikipedia page. To take a small step in that direction I'll first propose some changes here and see if anybody has any feedback. -RAM

Article sections I'd propose: 1. Basic overview - serotonergic brainstem nucleus, the main source of serotonin to forebrain
2. Role in controlling organism's physiology/behavior - general behavioral state, anxiety/depression/stress
3. Neurochemistry - classical neurotransmitters expressed (5-HT, GABA, DA, glutamate? [vglut3]), neuropeptides co-expressed
4. Anatomy - afferents, efferents

Welcome to Wikipedia! I'd like to encourage you to be bold about updating the page, and if you have any questions, feel free to ask me. I also encourage you to get an account -- it's not mandatory, but you'll probably find it helps you achieve your goals. More details are available at Wikipedia:Why create an account?. --Arcadian 02:44, 25 May 2007 (UTC)

This page is very cluttered with information about different things all over the place. Someone with a solid base of knowledge in this subject should fix it up. —Preceding unsigned comment added by Jovack (talkcontribs) 08:42, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
