Exposure of rats to aversive stimuli produces specific defence behaviour including the emission of 20-27kHz ultrasonic calls. Recent studies in this laboratory have shown that rats exposed to a 20kHz ultrasound tone display flight behaviour similar to that seen naturally, or following stimulation of brain regions associated with anxiety and defence. The present study examines the effect of ultrasound exposure on the central expression of the immediate early gene c-fos in the rat, in order to… CONTINUE READING
