They've more than lost ground, they're effectively dead in the incarnation that people generally refer to when they refer to "chemical imbalance", etc. A "low serotonin level" is simply not what is going on; moreover, the entire concept is incoherent. I am skeptical of any explanation that people have re: psychoactive drug action insofar as it relates to behavior or thought because our neuroscience--and, if I may say so, our physics--would need to be radically revised in order to develop any account of the mind-brain link that passes any philosophical muster.

However, even if we're talking strictly about the objective here, the classical monoaminergic theories are bunk according to today's neuroscience.
