Endocannabinoid analogues exhibit antidepressant and anti-compulsive like effects similar to that of serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) indicating a parallelism between the effects of serotonin and endocannabinoids. Therefore, the present study was designed to investigate the role of endocannabinoids in the antidepressant and anti-compulsive like effect of fluoxetine using mice model of forced swim test (FST) and marble-burying behavior (MBB). The results revealed that… CONTINUE READING
