An automated device for screening the effects of psychotropic drugs on aggression and motor activity in mice

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

An automated technique for measuring stimultaneously aggressive behavior and motor-activity in mice is described. This technique allows measure of aggressive behavior and motor activity continuously throughout long-lasting periods without disturbing the animals except for feeding, watering and cleaning the cages. The effects of n-D-propylacetate, a drug which affects aggression without affecting motor activity, were also tested.
