Grooming is among the most evolutionary ancient and highly represented behaviours in many animal species. It represents a significant proportion of an animal's total activity and between 30-50% of their waking hours. Recent research has demonstrated that grooming is regulated by specific brain circuits and is sensitive to stress, as well as to pharmacologic compounds and genetic manipulation, making it ideal for modelling affective disorders that arise as a function of stressful environments, such as stress and post-traumatic stress disorder. Over a series of 12 chapters that introduce and explicate the field of grooming research and its significance for the human and animal brain, this book covers the breadth of grooming animal models while simultaneously providing sufficient depth in introducing the concepts and translational approaches to grooming research. Written primarily for graduates and researchers within the neuroscientific community.
Allan V. Kalueff is professor of neuroscience in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University Medical School. He publishes actively on models of drug-drug and drug-receptor interactions, theories of brain disorders and their therapy, and complex interplay between cognitive, motivational and genetic bases of animal behavior. Carisa L. Bergner is a researcher in the Department of Physiology and Biophysics at Georgetown University Medical School. Her research currently involves mouse and zebrafish models of stress and depression. Justin L. La Porte holds a position at the National Institute of Mental Health in Bethesda, Maryland, USA. His research employs behavioral pharmacology and molecular genetics approaches to elucidate the pathogenetic mechanisms of psychiatric disorders such as depression, anxiety, and obsessive-compulsive disorder, with a specific focus on the role of serotonin transporter.
