An anxiogenic substance is one that causes anxiety. Anxiogenic effects can be measured by, for example, the hole-board test in rats and mice.. Yohimbine is an anxiogenic, used clinically to produce anxiety in experimental subjects.
Anxiolytic substances have the opposite effect: they reduce anxiety.
