The Porsolt “Forced Swim” Test (also known as the behavioral despair test) is the most commonly used test for assessment of depression in animal models. The test is commonly used to measure the effect of antidepressant drugs on behavior. The animals learn that escape is impossible and become immobile, moving only to keep their heads above water. Increased immobility is interpreted as depression. The Porsolt cylinder accommodates top-down and side camera positioning for automated detection of immobility behavior with ANY-maze video tracking software.
