Abstract

Since the incident of adolescent depression has increase, a more focused approach to depression research is needed at the preclinical level. Since previous research demonstrates that the social defeat model results in a depression-like phenotype in adult animal, we investigated whether this model will yield similar results during adolescence using the social interaction test.
