This unit describes a putative animal model for panic disorder. The basic premise is that pharmacological disruption of critical brain regions implicated in the circuitry of anxiety will lead to a condition similar to that of the human disorder. A clinically relevant test, the sodium lactate challenge, is utilized to assess parallels between the human condition and this rat model.
