As it is not possible to directly measure the activity of neurotransmitters in humans, the blood concentrations of some pituitary hormones [prolactin (PRL), adrenocorticotropin, and growth hormone] have been used as indicators of CNS neurotransmitter activity, as both the 5-HT and DA modulate the secretion of these hormones (37).
