By Georg Juckel

Bislang steht f?r das serotonerge process beim Menschen kein valider Indikator zur Verf?gung. Es gibt nun verschiedene Hinweise darauf, dass die Lautst?rkeabh?ngigkeit der akustisch evozierten N1/P2-Komponente (LAAEP) als ein solcher Indikator in Frage kommt: Eine starke LAAEP zeigt eine niedrige serotonerge Aktivit?t, eine schwache LAAEP zeigt eine hohe serotonerge Aktivit?t. Ziel der hier beschriebenen Untersuchungen battle es, diese Hypothese zu untermauern. Die Befunde belegen den Zusammenhang von LAAEP und dem serotonergen process und seine Spezifit?t. Entscheidend ist dabei auch die N?tzlichkeit der LAAEP als Indikator des serotonergen platforms bei wichtigen klinisch-psychiatrischen Fragestellungen, beispielsweise der Pr?diktion der individuellen Ansprechwahrscheinlichkeit auf Antidepressiva oder Rezidivprophylaktika.
