Indeed, aggression scores in this phase were even lower in the lesion group than in the sham group. The impairment in cooperation in the raphe-Iesioned group was exacerbated following the period of isolated housing. Sham lesioned pairs were moderately impaired by isolated housing, whereas a very large and sustained impairment was observed in the lesioned pairs (fig. 10). Recording of aggression indicated a large increase in the incidence of fights that persisted, though gradually diminished, throughout the 5 day test period in the lesioned group.
Responses include directed attack, hissing, defence reaction and rage. In only one study (Katz and Thomas 1976) a non-aggressive response is used as a control for behavioural specificity of the drug effect. In the cat, effects of anxi01ytics (Fukada and Tsumagari 1983), alcohol (Johansson et a1. 1984), amphetamine (Marini et a1. 1979) and pCPA have been demonstrated. Only the effects of pCPA and, to a certain extent, anxiolytics are comparable in rat and cat. Whether these differences reflect species differences, differences in response type or differences in methodology is hard to say.
Our hypothesis is that the mechanism activated in the hypothalamus controls the immediate requirements for attack. g. posture, touch and movements of the stimulated animal as well as its opponent. Output is the set of attack patterns observed during stimulation. Normally this mechanism is subservient to other elements checking environmental, internal and experiential aspects which suppress, or activate the attack mechanism. The behavioural consequences of interactions between these components could be described as an agonistic behavioural system.
