fluoxetine: Fluoxetine data set

Description Format Details References


Twenty rats were given fluoxetine and tested in the forced swim test (FST).


A data frame with 20 rows and 2 variables:


Dose of fluoxetine (0, 80, 160, or 240 mg/L).


Total immobility time in the FST (seconds).


Twenty rats were randomly assigned to a control condition or three doses of fluoxetine. Fluoxetine was administered in the drinking water. The amount of time the rats were immobile in the FST was measured and greater immobility time implies a more depressive phenotype.
