Although the serotonergic system has been implicated in the modulation of anxiety states, the specific receptor subtypes that mediate these states require clarification. The effects of drugs that act preferentially at 5-HT1B receptors were evaluated on the behavior elicited in the elevated plus-maze, an animal model of anxiety. Variations in the intensity of light affected mouse behavior in the plus-maze; lower light intensity increased the entries to and time spent on the open arm in a manner… CONTINUE READING
