Sodium valproate, a broad spectrum antiepileptic drug elevates the brain gamma amino butyric acid (GABA) levels by various mechanisms. Valproate at 200-500mg/kg induces wet dog shake (WDS) behavior in rats. The WDS behavior in rats and head twitch responses (HTR) in mice is evoked by 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT, serotonin), the 5-HT precursor, the directly acting non-selective 5-HT receptor agonists and 5-HT releasers. In order to determine the GABAergic and 5-HTergic involvement in the inductionfatcat:vdg4muzyxbgqnivbkq6qxk54au
