Drug Effects on Fear and Frustration: Possible Limbic Site of Action of Minor Tranquilizers

  • Jeffrey A. Gray
Part of the Handbook of Psychopharmacology book series (HBKPS)


This chapter attempts to answer the following linked questions:
  1. 1

    What is the simplest adequate description of the effects of the “minor tranquilizers” on “emotional behavior” (terms I shall define below)?

  2. 2

    What underlying psychological processes are altered by these drugs to produce these behavioral effects, and in what way are they altered?

  3. 3

    On what brain structures or systems do these drugs act to produce these behavioral effects?
