Sample text

The results of the study demonstrate that chronic administration of lithium or valproate, at therapeutically relevant doses, ameliorates the aggressive behavior in the resident intruder paradigm without affecting other aspects of social behavior. Accordingly, this study suggests that the paradigm has predictive validity and can be used as part of a battery of models for the study of new mood stabilizers (54). Additional new models emphasized aggression in a competition for food task (56) and irritability measured as resistance to capture (57,58).

Excellent model for post-traumatic stress disorder (66). It may now be interesting to explore the underlying genetic differences that may account for the differential responding in these subgroups of outbred rats. A number of attempts to look at individual variability have also been done in the context of depression and bipolar disorder (65,70,71), but for most of it, scientists who identified differential responses tried to amplify them by breeding the different subgroups to create different lines of responders versus nonresponders (72,73).

The issue of individual differences in behavioral modeling has been grossly neglected for many practical reasons, but this neglect may represent one of our major failures. It is apparent that the etiology of bipolar disorder (as of other psychiatric and nonpsychiatric diseases) is based on an interaction between the underlying genetics and the environmental effects on the biology where susceptible individuals that are exposed to environmental precipitating factors will express the disease phenotype (60 –62).
