Several serotonergic drugs were tested in isolation-induced aggressive behavior in male mice using ethological methodology. Eltoprazine, a mixed 5-HT1 agonist, reduced aggression but enhanced social interest and exploration. Several 5-HT1A agonists (8-OH-DPAT, ipsapirone, buspirone, 5-Me-ODMT) and a 5-HT uptake blocker (fluvoxamine) also reduced aggression. Although these drugs somewhat differentially affect aggressive behavior, the isolation-induced paradigm alone is not sensitive enough to… 
The role of serotonergic mechanisms in inhibition of isolation-induced aggression in male mice
TLDR
5-HT1A receptors are involved in mediation of isolation-induced aggressive behaviour in mice and the involvement of other 5-HT receptor subtypes needs further clarification.
Reduced aggression in mice lacking the serotonin transporter
TLDR
Dysregulation of the brain serotonergic system has been implicated in the pathophysiology of violence and aggression and desensitization of 5-HT1A/1B receptor function may contribute to reduced aggression in 5- HTT KO mice.
Modulation by 5-hT2A receptors of aggressive behavior in isolated mice.
TLDR
It is suggested that 5-HT2A receptors play a role in aggressive behavior in isolated mice and imply that the antiaggressive effect of MKC-242 may be mediated partly by the inhibition of 5- HT2A-receptor function.
Effects of a 5-HT 3 agonist and antagonist on inter-male aggression in Mus musculus
TLDR
This study examined the effects of the 5-HT 3 receptor agonist m-chlorophenylbiguanide (mCPBG) and antagonist ondansetron on inter-male aggression in mice and did not reveal any significant effects, which may reflect a functional difference between the unique fast-acting 5- HT 3 receptor-channel and the remaining G-protein coupled5-HT receptors.

BEHAVIOURAL PHARMACOLOGY OF THE SERENIC, ELTOPRAZINE
In this paper the effects of serenics (eltoprazine and fluprazine) are described in several animal models for offensive agonistic, defensive agonistic and predatory behaviour. They are compared with
Behavioral and pharmacogenetics of aggressive behavior.
TLDR
There are receptor populations in specific brain regions that preferentially modulate specific types of aggression and specific receptor subpopulations for GABA, glutamate and neuropeptides as they modulate the canonical aminergic neurotransmitters in brainstem, limbic and cortical regions with the ultimate outcome of attenuating or escalating aggressive behavior.

Effects of serotonin receptor agonists and antagonists on offensive aggression in mice
TLDR
Two serotonin classes of receptors may be differentially involved in offensive aggression, suggesting that 5-HT-2 receptor blockade is inhibitory for aggression.
Effects of gepirone, an aryl-piperazine anxiolytic drug, on aggressive behavior and brain monoaminergic neurotransmission
TLDR
Gepirone may be a weak postsynaptic 5HT agonist, but its primary effect is to decrease 5HT neurotransmission, in harmony with reports that decreased serotonergic activity has anxiolytic-like effects in animal models of anxiety.
Serenics and aggression
TLDR
The behavioural effects of a new class of psychotropic drugs, the serenics, which exert specific antiaggressive effects in animal paradigms of (offensive) agonistic behaviour are described.
Serotonergic Modulation of Agonistic Behaviour
Over the last fifteen years several hypotheses have emerged concerning the neurochemical control of aggressive behaviour. A variety of single neurotransmitters were suggested to control. aggression
Ethopharmacology of Flight Behaviour
TLDR
Some ethological concepts of flight behaviour are briefly outlined so as to provide a backdrop against which some chosen examples of drug-induced changes in flight behaviour in animals are analysed.
A comparison of the social postures of some common laboratory rodents.
TLDR
A number of general concepts are discussed, for example the relation of convulsions to flight behaviour, the reduction of incoming aggressive stimuli in submissive postures, "Cut-Off", and the inhibition of biting in the more social species.
AN ANALYSIS OF THE SOCIAL BEHAVIOUR OF THE MALE LABORATORY RAT
TLDR
It is suggested that there are two main Flight pathways, one leading to a Submissive Posture and the other to Crouch or Retreat, the occurrence of these is related to two types of behaviour seen in the wild, intra-colonial and territorial.
