Recent findings have demonstrated that Fawn hooded (FH/Har) rats exhibit enhanced plasma corticosterone (CORT) responses compared to Wistar rats after exposure to an open field, whereas this effect was not influenced by early social experience. In contrast, it was found that behavior in a modified version of the Porsolt Forced Swim Test (Porsolt FST) was affected by both strain and social experience. An important part of this study included modifications of the Porsolt FST that allowed… CONTINUE READING
