In a previous study conducted by our group, riparin II (ripII) isolated from the green fruit of Aniba riparia presented antianxiety effects in mice. This study investigates a possible antidepressant activity of rip II using two predictive tests for antidepressant activity in rodents: the forced swimming test (FST) and tail suspension test (TST).(More)
Previous work has shown that intraperitoneal administration of riparin III (ripIII) reduces immobility time in the forced swimming test (FST), which suggests potential antidepressant activity. As the mechanism of action is not completely understood, this study is aimed at investigating the antidepressant-like action of ripIII. Following intraperitoneal(More)
