Part of the Neuropsychology and Cognition book series (NPCO, volume 21)


The usefulness of animal models in studying brain-behavioral relationships has long been recognized, both from basic and clinical research perspectives. A variety of techniques have been applied to the study of animal models, and these can generally be divided into approaches involving: (1) behavioral assessment of subjects with induced neural disruption (examples would include assessment of subjects with brain lesions, focal and/or systemic neurochemical manipulations, or genetic manipulations such as “knock-outs”); and (2) concurrent behavioral and neurophysiological assessment of intact subjects (examples would include neurochemical microdialysis or electrophysiological recordings from neural structures during behavioral performance of specific tasks).
