Prevention of the analgesic consequences of social defeat in male mice by 5-HT1A anxiolytics, buspirone, gepirone and ipsapirone


Behavioural and pharmacological studies have suggested that anxiety may be an important factor in the initiation of non-opioid analgesia in defeated male mice. In the present study, the effects of three 5-HT1A anxiolytics (buspirone, ipsapirone and gepirone) on basal nociception and defeat analgesia were examined. Results show that the analgesic… (More)
