In many species, increasing serotonergic activity can reduce aggression and reverse dominance relationships. These effects may in part be mediated through interactions with the arginine vasotocin/vasopressin (AVT/AVP) system. We tested this hypothesis in a territorial coral reef fish, the bluehead wrasse (Thalassoma bifasciatum), by experimentally enhancing serotonergic neurotransmission, using the selective serotonin re-uptake inhibitor (SSRI) fluoxetine. Terminal phase (TP) males received 2… Expand
Chronic fluoxetine treatment promotes submissive behavior in the territorial frog, Eleutherodactylus coqui
TLDR
Findings demonstrate that in E. coqui the 5-HT system has profound influence on male territorial and social behavior, and fluoxetine treatment significantly reduced advertisement calling and territorial behavior in male E.coqui males. Expand
Serotonin decreases aggression via 5-HT1A receptors in the fighting fish Betta splendens
TLDR
A complex role for serotonin in the expression of aggression in teleost fishes is suggested, and B. splendens may be a useful model organism in pharmacological and toxicological studies. Expand
Effects of fluoxetine on the reproductive axis of female goldfish (Carassius auratus).
TLDR
The results reveal targets of serotonergic modulation in the neuroendocrine brain and indicate that fluoxetine has the potential to affect sex hormones and modulate genes involved in reproductive function and behavior in the brain of female goldfish. Expand
Arginine–vasotocin influence on aggressive behavior and dominance in rainbow trout
TLDR
The apparent inhibiting effect of AVT on aggression could be centrally mediated, and neither AVT nor Manning compound had any effects on plasma cortisol levels or brainstem serotonergic activity. Expand
Prozac affects stickleback nest quality without altering androgen, spiggin or aggression levels during a 21-day breeding test.
TLDR
Fluoxetine exposure resulted in reduced serotonergic activity in the male three-spined stickleback brain suggesting that the mechanism of action between humans and fish is at least partially conserved. Expand
Waterborne fluoxetine disrupts the reproductive axis in sexually mature male goldfish, Carassius auratus.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that FLX disrupts reproductive physiology of male fish at environmentally relevant concentrations, and potential mechanisms are discussed. Expand
Fluoxetine inhibits aggressive behaviour during parental care in male fighting fish (Betta splendens, Regan)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that fluoxetine exposure at environmental concentrations negatively affects territorial defense behaviour in fighting fish during parental care after larval hatching, which may have possible implications on reproductive success and population dynamics. Expand
Behavioral and biochemical responses of hybrid striped bass during and after fluoxetine exposure.
TLDR
It is suggested that sublethal exposure to fluoxetine decreases the ability of hybrid striped bass to capture prey and that serotonin can be used as a biomarker of exposure and effect. Expand
Effects of fluoxetine on the swimming and behavioural responses of the Arabian killifish
  • M. Barry

TLDR
Fish response to predator alarm and fluoxetine modulates levels of serotonin, a neurotransmitter that regulates several important physiological and behavioural processes including fear and anxiety, aggression, locomotion and feeding, which affects swimming and social behaviours. Expand
Decreased Aggressive and Locomotor Behaviors in Betta Splendens after Exposure to Fluoxetine
TLDR
There was a significant increase in aggression-response time to a perceived intruder for treated males on Days 11 and 19 and persisted for 6 days following removal of fluoxetine, and the differences in aggressive and locomotor behaviors seen in the influenza-treated groups were indistinguishable from controls three weeks following drug removal.

Fluoxetine treatment decreases territorial aggression in a coral reef fish
TLDR
Fluoxetine is used to experimentally enhance serotonergic neurotransmission in a territorial coral reef fish and supports the link between serotonin and aggressive behavior in fishes in both a controlled laboratory testing environment and the animal's natural habitat. 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
Social Influences on the Arginine Vasotocin System Are Independent of Gonads in a Sex-Changing Fish
TLDR
The results demonstrate that the AVT neural phenotype in the bluehead wrasse can be strongly influenced by social status, and that these social influences can be manifested independent of gonads. Expand
Vasopressin/Serotonin Interactions in the Anterior Hypothalamus Control Aggressive Behavior in Golden Hamsters
TLDR
The present studies examine the neuroanatomical and neurochemical interaction between AVP and 5-HT at the level of the anterior hypothalamus (AH) in the control of offensive aggression in Syrian golden hamsters to suggest that5-HT inhibits fighting, in part, by antagonizing the aggression-promoting action of the AVP system. Expand
FEEDING RANK AND BRAIN SEROTONERGIC ACTIVITY IN RAINBOW TROUT ONCORHYNCHUS MYKISS
TLDR
The results indicate that the increase in brain 5-HIAA/5-HT ratios in subordinate individuals is caused by an increased use (release) of 5-HT in these fish, and not by an increase in the level of tryptophan, the amino acid precursor of 4-HT. Expand
Multiple mechanisms of phenotype development in the bluehead wrasse
TLDR
It is demonstrated that AVT appears necessary for the assumption of dominant territorial status in males and females, but is sufficient only in the socially dominant terminal phase (TP) male phenotype, and that the ability of AVT to induce male-typical behavior differs among sexual phenotypes. Expand
Behavioral and Neurobiological Consequences of Social Subjugation during Puberty in Golden Hamsters
TLDR
The results establish puberty as a developmental period sensitive to environmental stressors and show that changes in the vasopressin and serotonin systems can correlate with behavioral alterations, supporting the role of these two neurotransmitters in the regulation of aggression. Expand
Manipulations of the AVT System Shift Social Status and Related Courtship and Aggressive Behavior in the Bluehead Wrasse
TLDR
The results suggest that the AVT system may play a key role in motivation of behaviors related to mating in a tropical coral reef fish, the bluehead wrasse Thalassoma bifasciatum. Expand
In socially isolated mice, the reversal of brain allopregnanolone down-regulation mediates the anti-aggressive action of fluoxetine
TLDR
It is concluded that Allo brain content normalization is a better candidate than 5-HT reuptake inhibition to explain the reduction of aggressiveness elicited by S-FLX and S-NFLX. Expand
Central Monoamines in Free-Ranging Lizards: Differences Associated with Social Roles and Territoriality
TLDR
Changes in serotonergic content and turnover between lizards from different social classes are seen in forebrain structures and reflect events associated with reproductive behaviors, stress and aggression, perhaps reflecting stress in subordinate animals from social and ecological sources. Expand
