8-OH-DPAT is a research chemical of the aminotetralin chemical class which was developed in the 1980s and has been widely used to study the function of the 5-HT1A receptor. It was one of the first major 5-HT1A receptor full agonists to be discovered.
Originally believed to be selective for the 5-HT1A receptor, 8-OH-DPAT was later found to act as a 5-HT7 receptor agonist and serotonin reuptake inhibitor/releasing agent as well.
In animal studies, 8-OH-DPAT has been shown to possess antidepressant, anxiolytic, serenic, anorectic, antiemetic, hypothermic, hypotensive, bradycardic, hyperventilative, and analgesic effects.
