Yes, of course. Might be referring to the 5-ht1b autoreceptor.
I have wanted doctors to try and make drugs that target the 5-ht1b autoreceptor. This is one of lithium's many actions. The acute antidepressant effect of lithium may be due to 5-ht1b autoreceptor blockade.
I have wanted to see drugs that target the 5-ht1b autoreceptor like lithium without doing all the extra stuff that lithium does.
