Previous studies have shown that septal lesions produce anxiolytic-like effects in rat models of "anxiety" (i.e., septal lesions, like anxiolytic drugs, increase rats' open-arm exploration in the elevated plus-maze test and decrease rats' burying behavior in the shock-probe burying test). Although these anxiolytic effects occur after lesions to posterior (but not anterior) regions of the septum, their anatomical specificity has not been clearly defined with respect to classical subdivisions of… CONTINUE READING

Contrary to the " anxiogenic " effects of septal lesions recently found in a " conflict " model of anxiety , we found that both lateral and medial septal lesions produced equivalent anxiolytic effects in the plus - maze and shock - probe tests .

In Experiment 2 , we found similar anxiolytic effects whenever lesions included septal areas just anterior to the fornix ( i.e. , the lateral septum ) but not when septal lesions were restricted to areas just posterior to the fornix ( i.e. , the septofimbrial and triangular septal nuclei ) .
