Ethological procedures were used to study the effects of GABA-positive drugs on aggression in male albino mice kept in isolation (opponent test). The results revealed several variants of antiaggressive effects of the tested GAB Aergic drugs: 1) antiaggressive, re-socializing of GABAA agonists muscimol (0.125 and 0.5 mg/kg) and THIP (2.0 mg/kg), and GABAB agonist baclofen (2.5-10 mg/kg); 2) antiaggressive, sedative of GABAB agonists baclofen (12.5 mg/kg), phenibut (50-100 mg/kg), and inhibitor of GABA transamininase sodium valproate (100 mg/kg); 3) antiaggressive, anxiogenic for muscimol (1 mg/kg), THIP (5 mg/kg), and sodium valproate (25-50 mg/kg).
