question for chemist (or other knowledgables)

Posted by linkadge on May 25, 2004, at 10:23:02

I keep reading that ginkgo biloba may help depression becase it increases the number of
5-ht1a receptors that decline with aging.

I though that antidepressants worked by downregulating the number of 5-ht1a receptors.

Are more 5-ht1a receptors better? or is this another presynaptic-postsynaptic issue.

Can someone clarify ??
