Differential effects of pre-weaning stress on adrenocorticotrophin and prolactin response to novel stimuli in adult rats.


Emotional responsiveness is reduced in adult animals which have been exposed to stress during their first few weeks of life (1, 2). The stress of 'handling', daily removal of pups from their mother during the pre-weaning period, also leads to a reduced corticosterone response to novel stimuli in adult life (3). In rats, exposure to novel stimuli results in… (More)
