A procedure was developed for using continuous avoidance responding as a base line for measuring the potencies and other behavioral characteristics of the action of drugs. Minimum effective doses are given for drugs that depressed avoidance behavior and for drugs that stimulated avoidance behavior. The Dose Range Ratio — a measure of the range of doses over which a drug altered continuous avoidance behavior without severely incapacitating the animal — ranged the depressant compounds on a… CONTINUE READING
