Animal Models for Affective Disorders

  • William T. McKinney


This chapter begins the second section of the book, which is organized around four case examples, or illustrations, of psychopathological syndromes for which animal models have been proposed. The four clinical syndromes covered are affective disorders, anxiety disorders, schizophrenia, and alcoholism.
