Serotonin is, evolutionary, the oldest neurotransmitter. Ubiquitous distribution of serotonin in central nervous system, also implication in many physiological functions indicates significance of serotonergic system. Expression of the serotonin function is the most conditioned by the interaction with postsynaptic receptors. In this article, the classification of the serotonergic receptors and its role is reviewed. The expectations of future research are detection of new subpopulations of receptors, their functions and summation of knowledge in order to find new therapy and new manner in treatment of central nervous system disturbances, which imply serotonergic dysfunction.
