Forced Swimming Test

The Forced Swimming Test (also called the Porsolt test or behavioural despair test) is a standard test used to measure the effect of antidepressant drugs on the behaviour of laboratory animals (typically rats or mice). The test is most frequently used to examine the "learned helplessness" response common in animal models of depression. Also this test allows to assess the learning ability of animals (combined with 'Extrapolation escape task', ТS0604)

Available for rats or mice.
