The effects of dominance rank on the behavioral responses to drugs that enhance central serotonergic function were examined in 45 adult male vervet monkeys living in 15 stable social groups. Each group contained 3 adult males, 3 adult females, and their immature offspring. Dominance rank was assessed by measuring success in intermale agonistic encounters. In every group one male was clearly the dominant, or alpha male, and the other two males were subordinate. Males from 5 groups received 3… Expand
Serotonergic mechanisms promote dominance acquisition in adult male vervet monkeys
TLDR
The sequence of the behavioral changes shown by the treated males as they acquired dominance status paralleled those seen in naturalistic conditions and strongly suggest that when hierarchical relationships are uncertain, serotonergic mechanisms may mediate the behaviors which permit a male to attain high dominance status.

Effects of fluoxetine on play dominance in juvenile rats
In a series of three studies, we investigated the influence of a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (fluoxetine) on the rough-and-tumble play of juvenile rats. In Experiment 1, both members ofExpand
Effects of Serotonin 1A or 1B Receptor Agonists on Social Aggression in Male and Female Syrian Hamsters
TLDR
There may be sex differences in the neurochemical regulation of aggression in male and female hamsters and a need for more studies directed at this issue is pointed to. Expand
Effects of the Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitor Fluoxetine on Social Behaviors in Male and Female Prairie Voles (Microtus ochrogaster)
TLDR
The findings suggest that serotonin influences social behavior in prairie voles, and fluoxetine did not alter nonsocial behaviors. Expand
Time-dependent effects of PCPA on social aggression in chicks
TLDR
It is concluded that PCPA increased social aggression in birds, an effect that diminished as brain 5-HT levels recovered over a 1-week period. Expand
Ethopharmacological studies differentiate the effects of various serotonergic compounds on aggression in rats
A series of experiments was performed to investigate the effects on aggression of various drugs affecting serotonergic transmission in rats. Using ethologically derived behavioural categories, theExpand
The social competition test as an animal model of anxiety in triads of male wistar rats.
TLDR
Results indicate that priority of access was indeed socially mediated although individual palatability and skill probably also contributed to the success of each rank position, consistent with previous findings that the social competition test appears sensitive to a range of anxiolytic and anxiogenic drug treatments but not to chronic antidepressant drug or repeated ECS treatment.

Rodent models of aggressive behavior and serotonergic drugs
  • B. Olivier, J. Mos
  • Medicine, Psychology
  • Progress in Neuro-Psychopharmacology and Biological Psychiatry
  • 1992
TLDR
The discussion attempts to delineate a role for 5-HT receptor subtype involvement in the modulation of aggression, with the restrictions faced with regard to the lack of specific serotonergic agonists and antagonists for certain receptor subtypes. Expand
Differential behavioral effects of tryptophan and 5-hydroxytryptophan in vervet monkeys: influence of catecholaminergic systems

TLDR
5-HTP's effects on catecholaminergic systems may underlie the differing behavioral effects of tryptophan and 5- HTP on behavior in a species closely related to humans. Expand
Serotonin, Social Behaviour, and Aggression in Vervet Monkeys
In our view, studies of the psychopharmacology of aggression are greatly enhanced by investigating animals or humans living in social groups. For example, differences in the form and intensity ofExpand

Sociopharmacology of d-amphetamine in Macaca arctoides
TLDR
Presenting behavior was increased by all doses under both treatment conditions and only after concurrent dosing and mounting may be a result of sexual stimulation or perhaps more likely, an indication of increased submissive behavior directed toward more dominant animals. Expand
Effects of diazepam related to social hierarchy in rhesus monkeys
TLDR
It is concluded that submissive animals show an extreme sensitivity to diazepam, and that individual hierarchy is an important element in the behavioural effects ofdiazepam. Expand
Analysis of Amphetamine Effects on Agonistic and Affiliative Behavior in Squirrel Monkeys (Saimiri sciureus)
TLDR
The general disruption of agonistic and affiliative behaviors due to amphetamine appears to be based on mechanisms which differ from those mediating stereotyped movements, which may be linked to disturbed affect. Expand

5-Hydroxytryptamine in the central nervous system and sexual receptivity of female rhesus monkeys
TLDR
P-Chlorophenylalanine (PCPA) was found to reverse unreceptivity induced by adrenalectomy in ovariectomised, oestrogen-treated females, suggesting that androgens regulate receptivity in female monkeys by modifying the activity of 5-HT-containing neural systems. Expand
Serotonergic influences on the social behavior of vervet monkeys (Cercopithecus aethiops sabaeus)
TLDR
The data suggest that serotonergic systems contribute relatively substantially to the mediation of grooming and approaching, participate less strongly in resting and locomoting, are implicated still more weakly in being solitary, avoiding, and being vigilant, and have little if any involvement in huddling, aggression, and sexual behavior.

Current observations of effects of acute and long-term chronic administration of delta9-tetrahydrocannabinol in group-caged rhesus monkeys are cited to demonstrate the sensitivity and specificity of primate social behavior test systems in characterization of CNS drugs. Expand

TLDR
During amphetamine administration, there was a significant increase in the following behaviors: time spent in "sit tense" postures, frequency of orienting, and frequency of agonistic behaviors. Expand

TLDR
The results suggest that the quipazine cue is mediated by an action at central 5-HT2 sites, and not on the behavioral measure or affinities for the5-HT1 site. Expand
