does it mean the functions that serotonin carries out in the body? Also does serotonergic dysfunction mean the inability for serotonin to carry out its functions in the body?

Yes, it describes the function of the serotonergic system - including the action of serotonin. Similarly, serotonergic dysfuction would mean an impairment of the normal operation of the serotonergic system, including the action of the neurotransmitter serotonin, but could also describe an abnormality in serotonin receptors etc.

apparently serotonergic means 'pertaining to or affecting serotonin'. So does serotonergic function mean function of serotonin or functions that affect serotonin. And does serotonergic dysfunction mean dysfunctions of serotonin or dysfunctions that affect serotonin?
