Maternal separation during crucial periods of development can lead to both physiological and behavioral sequelae. However, the exact consequences of maternal separation are paradigm dependent. The present study utilized complete artificial rearing (AR) to evaluate the effects of maternal separation on behavioral and electrophysiological functioning. In this procedure thermoregulation and weight gain progress are normal, but pups are deprived of any maternal influence from postnatal day 4 to 12… CONTINUE READING
