Abstract

Female hooded-Lister rats received either subchronic phencyclidine (PCP) (2 mg/kg, n = 20) or vehicle (1 ml/kg, n = 20) intraperitoneally twice daily for 7 days, followed by a 7-day washout period. Rats were challenged with acute PCP or vehicle and tested for locomotor activity to ensure hyperactivity was observed in the subchronic PCP-treated rats. Rats were then tested on the elevated plus maze and in an open field for 10 min. Subchronic PCP did not significantly affect behaviour on the elevated plus maze or in the open field. In conclusion, subchronic PCP does not induce anxiety-like behaviour.
