Anxiety, a behavioral consequence of stress, has been characterized in humans and some vertebrates, but not invertebrates. [...] Key Result This behavior was correlated with an increase in brain serotonin and was abolished by the injection of the benzodiazepine anxiolytic chlordiazepoxide. Serotonin injection into unstressed crayfish induced avoidance; again, this effect was reversed by injection with chlordiazepoxide. Our results demonstrate that crayfish exhibit a form of anxiety similar to that described in…Expand
Measuring Anxiety-like Behavior in Crayfish by Using a Sub Aquatic Dark-light Plus Maze
TLDR
A plus-shaped sub aquatic maze divided in two protective dark arms and two more aversive illuminated arms was designed to place crayfish in a conflicting situation between its innate curiosity for novel environment and its aversion for light. Expand
Do arthropods feel anxious during molts?
TLDR
Molts impose developmental stress in crayfish, under the control of ecdysteroids, and cause transient light-avoidance behavior that has features characteristic of anxiety. Expand
Serotonin, but not dopamine, controls the stress response and anxiety-like behavior in the crayfish Procambarus clarkii
TLDR
After stress, crayfish brain 5-HT levels increase, which induces anxiety-like behavior (ALB) but the level of dopamine does not change, and in contrast to5-HT, injection of dopaminedoes not trigger a metabolic response or ALB, and this study provides evidence that the anxiogenic effect of 4-HT injections can be prevented by a preliminary injection of 5- HT antagonists. Expand
Social harassment induces anxiety-like behaviour in crayfish
TLDR
It is observed that, contrary to winners, losers expressed anxiety-like behaviour (ALB) in correlation with the stress intensity they suffered during the harassment period mainly, suggesting a role for 5-HT, whose brain concentrations increased much more in losers than in winners. Expand
Anxiety-like behaviour increases safety from fish predation in an amphipod crustacea
TLDR
It is found that this modulation of decision-making under an anxiety-like state resulted in an increased survival to predation in microcosm experiments, and calls for further investigation on the costs counterbalancing the survival benefit of an elevated anxiety level evidenced here. Expand
Anxiety induces long-term memory forgetting in the crayfish.

TLDR
Serotonin of low concentrations mediated anxiety and stimulated forgetting of the winner's memory in dominant crayfish, suggesting that electrical shocks cause animals to forget their previous winner effect. Expand
Acute fluoxetine exposure alters crab anxiety-like behaviour, but not aggressiveness
TLDR
It is suggested that anxiety-like behaviour is more sensitive to modulation of serotonin than is aggressiveness in the shore crab, and these behaviours are sensitive to human antidepressant drugs. Expand
Emotional behavior in aquatic organisms? Lessons from crayfish and zebrafish
TLDR
Recent findings in the field of zebrafish‐ and crayfish‐based tests of stress, anxiety, aggressiveness and social preference are summarized, and further perspectives of using these novel model organisms in translational biological psychiatry are discussed. Expand
Bee happy
TLDR
Perry et al. (5) report decision-making behavior in bumblebees that is analogous to optimism in humans and may reflect positive affect in both humans and other species. Expand
Serotonin in Animal Cognition and Behavior
TLDR
The roles of 5-HT, illustrated in both invertebrates and vertebrates, show that it is more able to potentiate or mitigate the neuronal responses necessary for the fine-tuning of most behaviors, rather than to trigger or halt a specific behavior. Expand

Agitated Honeybees Exhibit Pessimistic Cognitive Biases
TLDR
This work asks whether honeybees display a pessimistic cognitive bias when they are subjected to an anxiety-like state induced by vigorous shaking designed to simulate a predatory attack and shows that the bees' response to a negatively valenced event has more in common with that of vertebrates than previously thought. Expand
5HT drugs in animal models of anxiety
TLDR
The classic hypothesis of 5HT function in anxiety may be only one part of an increasingly complex story and there is increasing evidence for multiple anxiety mechanisms, which may be able to explain differential patterns of drug effects within and between models. Expand
Associative Learning in Aplysia: evidence for conditioned fear in an invertebrate.
TLDR
These extensive and selective actions of the conditioned stimulus in Aplysia resemble the actions of conditioned fear stimuli in higher mammals and suggest that the functional equivalent of fear occurs in invertebrates and thus may be an adaptive mechanism that is widespread in the animal kingdom. Expand
Serotonin and aggressive motivation in crustaceans: altering the decision to retreat.
TLDR
It is shown that injection of serotonin into the hemolymph of subordinate, freely moving animals results in a renewed willingness of these animals to engage the dominants in further agonistic encounters and this reversal results principally from a reduction in the likelihood of retreat and an increase in the duration of fighting. Expand
Lobster locomotor activity as a measure of GABAAreceptor modulation
TLDR
It is suggested that benzodiazepines may affect crustacean GABA receptors in a fashion similar to the GABAA type found in the vertebrates, and that they may be involved in the regulation of locomotor behaviour. Expand
Animal models of anxiety disorders in rats and mice: some conceptual issues
  • T. Steimer
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Dialogues in clinical neuroscience
  • 2011
TLDR
Progress in this field will probably depend on the finding of endophenotypes which can be studied in both humans and animals with common methodological approaches, and the emphasis should be on individual differences in vulnerability, which have to be included in animal models. Expand
Anxiety from a Phylogenetic Perspective: Is there a Qualitative Difference between Human and Animal Anxiety?
TLDR
The ability to assess one's coping potential, the diversification of the anxiety responses, and autonoetic consciousness seem relevant markers in a phylogenetic perspective. Expand
Anxiety, defence and the elevated plus-maze
TLDR
The elevated plus-maze test can be a very valuable tool in drug screening and in the study of the neurobiology of anxiety and defence and more attention to behaviour and somewhat less emphasis on test simplicity and convenience would seem to be warranted. Expand
Crustacean Hyperglycemic Hormone (cHH) as a Modulator of Aggression in Crustacean Decapods
TLDR
The results demonstrate, for the first time, that, similarly to serotonin, cHH enhances individual aggression, up to reverse, although transitorily, the hierarchical rank in crustaceans. Expand
Avoidance learning in the crayfish (Procambarus clarkii) depends on the predatory imminence of the unconditioned stimulus: a behavior systems approach to learning in invertebrates
TLDR
It is confirmed that avoidance behavior was restricted to walking, and not by tail flipping despite the fact that consistent tail flipping allowed the crayfish to avoid shocks. Expand
