Animal Models of Psychopathology

Part of the Applied Clinical Psychology book series (NSSB)


Considerable debate surrounds the question of whether psychopathology can be meaningfully studied in animals. On one side of the debate is the argument that psychopathological syndromes such as anxiety and depression are uniquely human, i.e., that animals cannot experience such states. A corollary to this argument is that systematic study of emotional or disturbed behavior in animals will not be of use in understanding human psychopathology. On the other side of the debate is the argument that there are naturally occurring syndromes in some higher animals that closely parallel those observed in human psychopathology. The corollary to this argument is that there is much to be learned from the systematic study of emotional or disturbed behavior in those animals. Proponents of the later argument would contend that any problems created by potential differences between the species are more than offset by the advantages stemming from the ability to study the animals in highly controlled conditions over prolonged periods of time (cf. Abramson & Seligman, 1977).
