What does RAS stand for?

Posted by Paul on January 19, 1999, at 10:36:29

In one of Dr. Bob's "tips," I found the following statement: "I wonder if opiate interneurons in the RAS are the common system mediating the antidepressant effects of all the various meds we use." What does this mean? It was said in the context of coadministering naltrexone to patients receiving SSRI's in the context of helping reduce SSRI-induced apathy, I believe. I'm very curious to know whether SSRI mechanisms are in any way related to opioid mechanisms. Thanks.
