Free Preview
  • Provides an easily accessible reference volume for methods used in the characterization of mood and anxiety related phenotypes in mice
  • Covers a wide range of behavioral assays used to assess the efficacy of potential novel antidepressant and anxiolytic compounds
  • Features contributions by world-renowned scientists with broad experience in the development and application of behavioral tasks in mice
  • Fills the void of resources for detailed protocols specifically for the study of mood and anxiety disorders as opposed to the several books that provide broad overviews related to the behavioral characterization of mice

About this book

Affecting approximately twenty percent of the world population, mood and anxiety disorders have been the subject of ever-increasing research. This increased research parallels a remarkable growth in the use of the laboratory mouse as a tool to understand the biological and genetic basis of mood and anxiety disorders as well as to develop improved treatments. In Mood and Anxiety Related Phenotypes in Mice: Characterization Using Behavioral Tests, world-renowned researchers provide an overview of behavioral approaches utilized in the characterization of mood and anxiety related behaviors in mice as well as commonly used behavioral assays to assess the potential antidepressant and anxiolytic efficacy of novel compounds. As a volume in the successful Neuromethods™ series, the chapters provide authoritative reviews including up-to-date detailed protocols of the most commonly used approaches in the field.

Mood and Anxiety Related Phenotypes in Mice: Characterization Using Behavioral Tests is an ideal resource for scientists actively pursuing or interested in establishing behavioral protocols in their laboratories, while also serving as a reference for those students, scientists, and practitioners who have an interest in better understanding the preclinical behavioral methods used in mood and anxiety research.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Part of the Neuromethods Series, this book describes behavioral protocols that are used in laboratory experiments with mice in order to understand mood and anxiety related phenotypes. … This excellent book describes specific behavioral tests in great detail. Readers who have a strong foundation in research will be very pleased because they can replicate the tests with the information here and the protocols are analyzed in terms of their usefulness.” (Gary B. Kaniuk, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2010)
