Pindobind is a compound developed by researchers associated with Stanford University,[1] identified as a central nervous system depressant,[2] which generated a response in animals reducing offensive actions such as chasing, while also notably reducing tendencies of the test animal to evade when stimulated to do so.[2] It acts as an irreversible beta blocker and irreversible 5-HT1A receptor antagonist.
