Is behavioral variation along the bold-shy continuum associated with variation in the stress axis in zebrafish?
We tested whether boldness is associated with attenuation of the physiological stress response in behaviorally selected lines of zebrafish Danio rerio. We measured three component behaviors ofExpand
