Descripción

The tail-suspension test was developed as an alternative to the Forced Swimming test, yet the concept remains the same.

Rodents, suspended by their tail, innately attempt to escape from this aversive situation. However, following failed attempts to escape, they experience despair and become immobile. The magnitude of immobility is considered to be correlated with the depressive-like state of the subjects and is significantly decreased by antidepressants.
