A new method of the evaluation of behavioral depression was developed based on a ranged scale of changes in a number of depressive symptoms in behavior and general state of animals. The method makes it possible to evaluate the individual expression of depressive symptoms in rats and can be used for revealing a correlation between the decrease in motivation level in depressive animals and alterations of some pathophysiological parameters.
