The Wistar-Kyoto (WKY) rat strain demonstrates endogenous hormonal and behavioral abnormalities that emulate many of those found in symptom-presenting depressive patients. Evidence suggests that the WKY strain may harbor heterogeneity not found in other inbred strains, including greater behavioral and genetic variability. We took advantage of this(More)

The traditional difficulties in accepting animal models for psychopathology stem from the argument that there is no evidence for concluding that what occurs in the brain of the animal is equivalent to what occurs in the brain of a human. However, if one models any or some core aspects of(More)
During the flow of evolution, animals have developed specific sensory systems for the interaction with their environment. One example are tactile hairs – so called sinus hairs or vibrissae – on the body surfaces of mammals. These sinus hairs provide inspiration for technical development, since the variability of the biological sensors is due to mechanical(More)
