The initial intent of this study was to investigate p-CPA's actions on conditioned "anxiety" (CER) in rats in order to ascertain whether the derived effects were qualitatively similar to those previously reported for "conflict" behavior. Specifically, the goals of this study were to determine if p-CPA would reinstate lever-pressing behavior that had been suppressed by a series of tone-shock pairings. If a change in behavior did occur, would the reintroduction of serotonin, through the use of 5-HTP, return the behavior to pre-drug control levels.
