I am investigating the effect of prucalopride, a 5-HT4 agonist currently used to treat chronic constipation, on emotional processing. Animal studies have revealed faster-acting effects of the drug on depression-related behaviours relative to SSRIs. We are therefore interested in whether prucalopride also exerts similar effects to antidepressants on a battery of tasks measuring emotional attention, interpretation and memory in healthy adults.
