About this book
Preclinical research related to mood and anxiety disorders relies extensively upon mouse behavioral tests and models, the use of which continues to increase as a greater number of underlying susceptibility genes are discovered, new targets for medications are identified, and clinical studies reveal novel neurobiological risk factors. Mood and Anxiety Related Phenotypes in Mice: Characterization Using Behavioral Tests, Volume II serves as a complement to the previous volume in order to offer a comprehensive resource for the behavioral approaches that are valuable for the characterization of mood and anxiety disorder-related behaviors in mice and the techniques that are utilized in the development of effective medications. As a collection presented in the Neuromethods series, each chapter provides a brief background and review of the test or model as well as a complete and up-to-date protocol narrative.
Authoritative and comprehensive, Mood and Anxiety Related Phenotypes in Mice: Characterization Using Behavioral Tests, Volume II is an ideal resource for scientists actively pursuing or interested in establishing vital behavioral protocols in their laboratories.
