The behavioural and endocrine responses to a 10 min white noise stress have been characterized in female virgin and undisturbed lactating Sprague-Dawley rats. Animals were continuously video-taped and frequent blood samples were collected using an automated sampling system. Noise stress caused hypothalamo-pituitary-adrenal (HPA) activation, as indicated by a rapid increase in plasma corticosterone and ACTH in the virgins: corticosterone concentrations peaked 20 min after initiation of the… CONTINUE READING
