Effects of SRX246 on an Experimental Model of Fear and Anxiety in Humans


Brief description of study

To determine the effects of SRX246 on fear and anxiety based on fear-potentiated startle in humans. Additionally, the effects of the compound on emotion recognition will be explored.

Detailed Study Description

The study will use a double-blind, cross-over design in which each subject will receive placebo and SRX246 for 5-7 days before testing (given in counter-balanced order). The study will examine the effect of the drug on the potentiation of startle using a well-established paradigm that involves anticipation of no-shock, predictable shock, and unpredictable shock. Drug effects on emotion recognition will also be explored.
