Differences in the effects of 5-HT1A receptor agonists on forced swimming behavior and brain 5-HT metabolism between low and high aggressive mice

Abstract

Male wild house-mice genetically selected for long attack latency (LAL) and short attack latency (SAL) differ in structural and functional properties of postsynaptic serotonergic-1A (5-HT1A) receptors. These mouse lines also show divergent behavioral responses in the forced swimming test (FST, i.e., higher immobility by LAL versus SAL mice). We investigated… (More)
