Behavioral and neurochemical characterization of maternal care effects on juvenile Sprague–Dawley rats
Maternal care represents a major constituent of early life environment and has the potential to modulate critical neurobehavioral responses to stress. The aim of the present study was to determine the effects of naturally ...
Maternal behavior as an early modulator of neurobehavioral offspring responses by Sprague-Dawley rats
Maternal care plays an important role as an early modeler of neurodevelopment and brain function, and its effects remain until adulthood. Such modeling or programming has shown to influence the stress response and ...
Individual differences in the immobility behavior in juvenile and adult rats are associated with monoaminergic neurotransmission and with the expression of corticotropin-releasing factor receptor 1 in the nucleus accumbens
(Behavioural Brain Research, Vol. 252. pp. 77-87, 2013)
The study of individual differences provides an important methodological approach to analyze the neurobehavioral spectrum of a given cohort in order to understand brain function and disease. Based on immobility time in ...
Individual Differences In The Forced Swimming Test And The Effect Of Environmental Enrichment: Searching For An Interaction
(Neuroscience 265(1):95-107, 2014-02-05)
Animals with low and high immobility in the forced swimming test (FST) differ in a number of neurobehavioral factors. A growing body of evidence suggests that the exposure to enriched environments mediates a number ...
Individual differences in the forced swimming test and neurochemical kinetics in the rat brain
(Physiology & Behavior 126(1):60-69, 2014-02-08)
Individual differences in the forced swimming test (FST) could be associatedwith differential temporal dynamics of gene expression and neurotransmitter activity. We tested juvenile male rats in the FST and classified ...
