Human ethology can bring significant insight to the evaluation of the pathology of human behavior in various medical disciplines and an important task of medical prediction can be made more reliable by considering the ethology.

A Comparison of Drug Responses by Male and Female Rats During Aggression Tests

The scope of this chapter is to compare the differences and similarities of the neuropharmacology of male and female aggression in rats and to rely on extrapolations from the laboratory situation to more naturalistic situations and vice versa.

Psychopharmacology's debt to experimental psychology.

Experimental work by Kraepelin, Rivers, and Hollingworth was particularly important in establishing drug-screening protocols still used today, and research on nitrous oxide and on the effects of drug combinations is discussed to illustrate the importance of experimental psychology to psychopharmacology.

Unravelling the behavioural and molecular hallmarks of Spinocerebellar Ataxia type 17 (SCA17). Studies on a transgenic rat model

The anxiety test “light spot” (LS) was applied to the transgenic SCA17 rat model in the PhenoTyper 4500® to extend the knowledge of this automated tool for behavioural phenotyping and to verify an anxietylike phenotype at three different disease stages for use in future therapeutic studies.

[Selected problems of behavioral tests].

Changes in experimental animals' behavior as well as humans' behavior reflect even mild alterations in function of central nervous system. In order to detect those changes variety of tests' batteries

Anti-inflammatory and ethopharmacological effects of an ethanolic leaf extract of Palisota Hirsuta K. Schum. (Commelinaceae)

The Contribution of Ethological Techniques to the Study of Drug Effects

The success of any procedure that is to evaluate the behavioral effects of a drug depends on the ability of the procedure to discriminate among different types of behavior and on its susceptibility to accurate measurement.

Ethopharmacology of Vocal Behavior in Primates

Attempts to experimentally manipulate behavior by chemicals has had a long history. Many of the earlier findings must be viewed with some skepticism and uncertainty, however, due to the questionable

An ethologist's approach to behavioural toxicology.

Pharmaco-ethological analysis of agonistic behavior between resident and intruder mice: effect of anticholinergic drugs.

The evidence suggests that brain cholinoceptive mechanisms may participate in the regulation of intraspecies aggressive behavior and it appears that other nonspecific behavioral effects of scopolamine cannot be ruled out.

The Utility of Ethological Assessments of Murine Agonistic Interactions in Behavioural Teratology: The Foetal Alcohol Syndrome

Swaab and Mirmiran (1984) have reviewed the evidence indicating that early exposure to a wide variety of compounds alters the developing brain and suggest that behavioural measures provide more sensitive indices of teratological effects than changes in morphology or physiology.

The aim in behavioural comparisons is to choose indices that give roughly equal weighting to information which has been obtained from each of the species, to avoid the criticism made by White, Juhase that 'it is as senseless to study the comparative abilities of man and spider to run a T-maze as it is to compare their performances at web-spinning'.

Ethology and Neuropharmacology: Rodent Ultrasounds

Investigations with zebra finches and canaries point to multisynaptic networks involving aminergic and steroid-sensitive cells that mediate the initiation and production of important communicative signals.
