Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Change From Baseline in QT/QTc Intervals [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Day 3 ]
    Change from baseline in QT and QTc interval will be assessed. QT interval will be measured in triplicates from 12 lead Holter extracted triplicate ECG recordings and corrected QT (QTc) interval will be calculated based on Fridericia (QTcF), Bazett (QTcB), and/or study specific power (QTcP) equations.

  2. Percentage of Participants with Change from Baseline in T-wave Morphology [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Day 3 ]
    The percentage of participants in each treatment having T-wave morphology changes from baseline that represent the appearance or worsening of the morphological abnormality will be reported.

  3. Percentage of Participants with Change from Baseline in U-wave Morphology [ Time Frame: Baseline up to Day 3 ]
    The percentage of participants with change from baseline with abnormal U-waves morphology that represent the appearance or worsening of the morphological abnormality will be reported.


Secondary Outcome Measures :

    The AUC (0-infinity) is the area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time 0 to infinite time, calculated as the sum of AUC (0-last) and C(last)/lambda(z), in which AUC(0-last) is area under the plasma concentration-time curve from time zero to time of the last quantifiable concentration, C(last) is the last observed quantifiable concentration and lambda(z) is elimination rate constant. AUC (0-infinity) will be assessed for seltorexant and its circulating metabolites.

  5. Elimination Half-Life (t1/2) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose; 0.33, 0.5, 0.67, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 48 hours Post-dose ]
    Elimination half-life associated with the terminal slope Lambda (z) of the semi logarithmic drug concentration-time curve, calculated as 0.693/Lambda (z).

  6. Total Apparent Clearance (CL/F) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose; 0.33, 0.5, 0.67, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 48 hours Post-dose ]
    CL/F for extravascular administration divided by the fraction of dose absorbed, calculated using the observed value of the last non-zero plasma concentration.

  7. Apparent Volume of Distribution (Vd/F) [ Time Frame: Pre-dose; 0.33, 0.5, 0.67, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 48 hours Post-dose ]
    Vd/F is defined as Dose/[Lambda (z)*AUC (0-infinity)].

  8. Metabolite to Parent (M/P) Ratio for AUC[last] [ Time Frame: Pre-dose; 0.33, 0.5, 0.67, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 48 hours Post-dose ]
    M/P Ratio AUC[last] is the ratio of AUC[last] of seltorexant to AUC[last] of seltorexant's metabolites.

  9. Metabolite to Parent (M/P) Ratio for AUC[infinity] [ Time Frame: Pre-dose; 0.33, 0.5, 0.67, 1, 1.5, 2, 2.5, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 16, 24, 36, and 48 hours Post-dose ]
    M/P Ratio AUC[infinity] is the ratio of AUC[infinity] of seltorexant to AUC[infinity] of seltorexant's metabolites.

  10. Relationship Between the Plasma Concentrations of Seltorexant and Changes in the QT/QTc Interval [ Time Frame: Up to Day 3 ]
    The relationship between change in QT/QTc interval and plasma concentrations from both doses of seltorexant at matching time points will be assessed.

  11. Number of Participants with Adverse Events and Serious Edverse Events as a Measure of Safety and Tolerability [ Time Frame: Approximately 11 weeks ]
    An adverse event (AE) is any untoward medical occurrence in a participant who received study drug without regard to possibility of causal relationship. A serious adverse event (SAE) is an AE resulting in any of the following outcomes or deemed significant for any other reason: death; initial or prolonged inpatient hospitalization; life-threatening experience (immediate risk of dying); persistent or significant disability/incapacity; congenital anomaly.
