The present study was made to investigate the role of tachykinin NK2 receptors in the expression of stress-related behaviors in animals. Under basal conditions, intraperitoneal (i.p.) administration of the selective tachykinin NK2 receptor antagonist, saredutant (1 and 3 mg/kg) or diazepam (1 mg/kg) exerted anxiolytic-like effects in rodents, as they reduced grooming score of Wistar male rats tested in the novelty-induced grooming sampling test (NGT) and increased percentage of time and entries… CONTINUE READING
