Grooming is among the most evolutionary ancient and highly represented behavior in many animal species. It represents a significant proportion of an animal's total activity and between 30% and 50% of their total awake time. Recent research has demonstrated that grooming is regulated by specific brain circuits and sensitive to stress, as well as to pharmacological compounds and genetic manipulation, making it ideal for modeling affective disorders that arise as a function of stressful environments, such as stress and post-traumatic stress disorder. Over a series of 12 chapters that introduce and explain the field of grooming research and its significance for the human and animal brain, this book covers the breadth of grooming animal models while simultaneously providing sufficient depth in introducing the concepts and translational approaches to grooming research. Written primarily for graduates and researchers within the neuroscientific community.
