Electroconvulsive shock (ECS) produces many neurochemical alterations which may be related to its efficacy in the treatment of different psychiatric disorders. This review focuses particularly on experimental findings of CNS receptor changes in animals following chronic ECS and relates them to neurotransmitter and behavioral changes. Also, the pharmacological effect of other antidepressant treatment are compared. Possible mechanisms of action are discussed.
