8-Hydroxy-N,N-dipropyl-2-aminotetralin (8-OH-DPAT) is a psychoactive drug and research chemical used widely in scientific research. It acts as a 5-HT1A and 5-HT7 receptor full agonist,[1][2] [3] and to a lesser extent, as a serotonin reuptake inhibitor[4] and releasing agent.[5] In animal studies, 8-OH-DPAT has antidepressant,[6] anxiolytic,[7] serenic,[8] anorectic,[9] antiemetic,[10] hypothermic,[11] hypotensive,[12] bradycardic,[12] hyperventilative,[13] and analgesic effects.[14]
