    • 2009 January 30, Michael L. Anstey et al., “Serotonin Mediates Behavioral Gregarization Underlying Swarm Formation in Desert Locusts”, in Science[1]:
      Locusts that received an injection of 5-HTP but were not crowded also showed a similar but also nonsignificant increase in Pgreg (median 0.38; P = 0.448), which indicates that this treatment was also insufficient to induce full behavioral gregarization.
