The use of ethoexperimental techniques to elicit and maximize the full range of defensive behaviors of rats and mice enables a very precise analysis of the effects of drugs on these behavior patterns. Two rat defense test batteries (the fear/defense test battery or F/DTB and the anxiety/defense test battery or A/DTB) have provided evidence that anxiolytic drugs, even from different classes, produce a common pattern of changes in specific behaviors. A recently developed mouse defense test… CONTINUE READING
