AIMS An assessment of the acoustic startle response (ASR) and prepulse inhibition (PPI) of ASR in laboratory animals is used to model human anxiety and psychotic states, respectively. The aim of the study was to evaluate ASR and PPI in alcohol-naive male and female Warsaw alcohol high-preferring (WHP) and Warsaw alcohol low-preferring (WLP) rats. METHODS ASR and PPI were assessed in two separate experiments by using the SR-LAB apparatus (San Diego Instruments, San Diego, CA, USA). In the ASR… CONTINUE READING
