The aim of this review was to summarize the studies potentially relevant to whether Drosophila can be used as a genetically tractable model to study the genetic and molecular basis of emotional behavior. Can these studies contribute to a better understanding of neural substrates of abnormal emotional states and specific neuropsychiatric illnesses, such as depression and anxiety?
