There are three sections in this chapter. In the first, we describe different aspects of behavior, the principles of their control, and the determinants of their expression. In the second, the behavioral tasks of most importance to contemporary psychopharmacology are described in more detail. In the third, models of particular significance in relation to abnormal as opposed to normal behavior are highlighted. In later chapters, their use in the evaluation of novel drugs for treating neuropsychiatric disorders is described.
