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 ...
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 ...
Efectos del cuidado materno temprano en el desarrollo del sistema nervioso
Ambientes adversos tempranos pueden afectar el desarrollo del sistema nervioso e incluso favorecer la aparición de desórdenes del estado de ánimo como la depresión y ansiedad. Esta hipótesis ha sido corroborada a través ...
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 ...
Diferencias individuales en modelos animales: un enfoque para el estudio de factores neurobiológicos relacionados con depresión
Individual differences in animal models: an approach to study neurobiological factors related to depression
El estudio de las diferencias individuales en la prueba de nado forzado (PNF) en ratas permite la identificación de factores de susceptibilidad o de resistencia en el desarrollo conductas relacionadas con la depresión. ...
Behavioural characterisation of chronic unpredictable stress based on ethologically relevant paradigms in rats
The chronic unpredictable stress (CUS) paradigm is extensively used in preclinical research. However, CUS exhibits translational inconsistencies, some of them resulting from the use of adult rodents, despite the evidence ...
Environmental Enrichment and Physical Exercise Attenuate the Depressive-Like Effects Induced by Social Isolation Stress in Rats
We assessed the antidepressant-like effects of environmental enrichment (EE) and physical exercise (PE) compared with the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor fluoxetine against the depression-related neurobehavioral ...
