Genetic factors have been shown to influence the nature and the intensity of the stress responses. In order to understand better the genetic mechanisms involved, we have studied the behavioral and neuroendocrine responses to novel environments in the WKHA/WKY inbred strains and we have investigated the genetic relationships between these traits in a segregating F2 intercross. The animals were submitted to behavioral tests known to provide both indices of activity and fear (activity cages, open… CONTINUE READING
