Intraspecific confrontation between male rats represents a biologically relevant form of social stress. C-fos expression has been used to map the pattern of neural activation following either a single (acute) or repeated (10 times) exposure of an intruder male to a larger male in the latter's home cage. These conditions induce high levels of aggressive interaction. Sixty minutes after a single defeat, there was intense c-fos expression (quantified using image analysis) in restricted areas of… CONTINUE READING
