Abstract: The aim of this study was to assess the modification of the behavioral effect of ethanol by antialcoholic drugs, Ca-cyanamide and disulfiram, in terms of discrete shuttle avoidance response in mice. Ethanol (2g/kg p.o.) significantly increased the response rate due to its disinhibitory action. Although the single administration of Ca-cyanamide (1-10 mg/kg p.o.) or disulfiram (3-30 mg/kg p.o.) did not change the response rate, these drugs inhibited the ethanol-induced increase in the response rate. A similar reduction of the response rate was produced by the single administration of acetaldehyde (1-10mg/kg p.o.), and the combined administration of ethanol (2 g/kg) + acetaldehyde (1-10 mg/kg). These results suggest that the combined administration of ethanol and antialcoholic drugs may cause an accumulation of acetaldehyde, and may decrease in the response rate. In summary, it is expected that the present experimental conditions of the discrete shuttle avoidance can be applied to behaviorally investigate not only the disinhibition (alcohol intoxication) but also the drunken frenzy (sickness) and/or hangover induced by ethanol in mice.
