Involvement of AMPA-type glutamate receptors in the regulation of social behavior has been suggested by experiments with mice deficient for the GluR-A subunit-containing AMPA receptors showing reduced intermale aggression. In the present study, effects of AMPA receptor antagonists on mouse social behavior towards unfamiliar Swiss-Webster males on a neutral territory were tested using male subjects from the Turku Aggressive (TA) and Turku Non-Aggressive (TNA) mouse lines bidirectionally selected… Expand
Effects of the administration of (RS)-3,4-DCPG, a mixed AMPA receptor antagonist/mGluR8 receptor agonist, on aggressive behaviour in mice
Abstract Introduction Ionotropic and metabotropic (mGlu) receptors of glutamate have been suggested to be involved in the modulation of aggression. Thus, recent studies found reduced aggression inExpand
Involvement of prefrontal AMPA receptors in encounter stimulation-induced hyperactivity in isolation-reared mice.
TLDR
Results suggest that an increase in AMPA receptor activity in the prefrontal cortex contributes to some, but not all, abnormal behaviours in isolation-reared mice. Expand
GluA3-deficiency in mice is associated with increased social and aggressive behavior and elevated dopamine in striatum
TLDR
A role of GluA3 in the modulation of social behavior through brain dopamine and/or serotonin signaling and different AMPA receptor subunits affect social behaviorthrough distinct mechanisms is supported. Expand
Behavioural profile of selective ligands for mGlu7 and mGlu8 glutamate receptors in agonistic encounters between mice.
TLDR
Overall, the results suggest that mGlu7 receptors (but not mGLU8) may be implicated in the modulation of aggression. Expand
Effects of AMPA receptor antagonist, NBQX, and extrasynaptic GABAA agonist, THIP, on social behavior of adolescent and adult rats
TLDR
AMPA and extrasynaptic GABAA receptors appear to play little role if any in modulation of peer-directed social behavior in adolescence and adulthood and not likely to contribute to previously observed age differences in the social effects of acute ethanol. Expand
Excitatory/inhibitory balance across ontogeny contributes to age-specific behavioral outcomes of ethanol-like challenge in conditioned taste aversion.
TLDR
Only antagonism of NR2B receptors in male rats mimicked age-specific sensitivities to the aversive effects of EtOH, and the highest dose of extrasynaptic GABAA agonist THIP induced CTA in adolescents but not adults, an opposite ontogenetic profile as seen following EtOH. Expand
Glutamate-vasopressin interactions and the neurobiology of anabolic steroid-induced offensive aggression
TLDR
The BNST is identified as a key brain region involved in aggression control and evidence is provided suggesting that AVPergic-mediated stimulation of BN ST-glutamate is a possible mechanism that facilitates aggression expression in adolescent AAS-treated animals. Expand
Mediators of synaptic activity in anxiety- and depression-related behaviors
TLDR
Results suggest that multiple synaptically-expressed molecules mediate depression-related behavior, including the GluN2Bcontaining NMDARs, which play a role in mediating depression- related behaviors during acute and repeated stressors, depending upon the pharmacological or genetic manipulations used. Expand
Glutamate and the aggression neural circuit in adolescent anabolic steroid-treated Syrian hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus).
TLDR
The current results indicate that glutamate likely functions as the major aggression output system from the LAH and that adolescent AAS treatment significantly alters the neural circuitry modulating aggression. Expand
Cell-Type-Specific Role of ΔFosB in Nucleus Accumbens In Modulating Intermale Aggression
TLDR
It is found that ΔFosB expression promotes aggressive behavior, effects that are dissociable from its effects on aggression reward, a significant first step in identifying therapeutic targets for the reduction of aggressive behavior across a range of neuropsychiatric illnesses. Expand

TLDR
It is shown that AMPA receptor antagonists can attenuate the behavioral effects of drugs, such as amphetamine and dizocilpine, that increase dopamine neurotransmission, however, the behavior effects of the direct dopamine agonist apomorphine are not consistently attenuated by AMPA antagonists. Expand
AMPA receptors and motivation for drug: effect of the selective antagonist NBQX on behavioural sensitization and on self-administration in mice
TLDR
There was no evidence that NBQX specifically antagonized the reinforcing effect of cocaine, as responding was similarly reduced on both the reinforced and the non-reinforced lever, nor did the response toNBQX mimic behaviour seen following changes in the concentration of the reinforcer. Expand
Disruption of operant oral self-administration of ethanol, sucrose, and saccharin by the AMPA/kainate antagonist, NBQX, but not the AMPA antagonist, GYKI 52466.
TLDR
Kainate, but not AMPA (alpha-amino 3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazole propionate) receptors may be important in mediating the reinforcing effects of ethanol. Expand
Morphine-Induced Dependence and Sensitization Are Altered in Mice Deficient in AMPA-Type Glutamate Receptor-A Subunits
TLDR
The results indicate that AMPA receptors are involved in the acute and chronic effects of morphine, including context-independent sensitization, and that the GluR-A subunit itself is important for morphine tolerance and dependence. Expand
CNQX but not NBQX prevents expression of amphetamine-induced place preference conditioning: a role for the glycine site of the NMDA receptor, but not AMPA receptors.

TLDR
The results suggest that neither the induction nor the expression of an amphetamine-induced CPP requires AMPA receptor-mediated transmission and that effects found in previous studies using the less selective AMPA receptors antagonists may be due to the effects of these compounds at the glycine site of the N-methyl-D-aspartate receptor. Expand
Evidence for an anxiogenic action of AMPA receptor antagonists in the plus-maze test.
TLDR
It is suggested that AMPA receptor antagonists produce a dose-dependent increase of anxiogenic behavior in the plus-maze test situation. Expand
Some behavioral effects of CNQX AND NBQX, AMPA receptor antagonists.
TLDR
The obtained results indicate that the AMPA receptor antagonists differ in their neuropharmacological profile from CGP 37849, an NMDA receptor antagonist. Expand
Blockade of the locomotor stimulant effects of cocaine and methamphetamine by glutamate antagonists.
TLDR
The AMPA antagonist, NBQX, produced dose-dependent blockade of the locomotor stimulant effects of cocaine and methamphetamine in male, Swiss-Webster mice at doses which did not alter spontaneous locomotion, providing evidence for the involvement of glutamatergic input in the control of behavior involving mesolimbic dopamine. Expand
Reduced aggression in AMPA‐type glutamate receptor GluR‐A subunit‐deficient mice
TLDR
It is found that in several paradigms of agonistic behavior naïve male mice deficient for the GluR‐A subunit‐ containing AMPA receptors are less aggressive than wild‐type littermates, suggesting that male hormones are involved in the expression of suppressed aggressiveness. Expand

TLDR
It was found that both compounds tended to increase aggressiveness and social behavior and reduce ambivalent activity consistent with approach-avoidance conflict and confirmed that noncompetitive antagonists of NMDA may generate a benzodiazepine-like behavioral profile. Expand
