Stereotypy and perseverative responding in caged bears: further data and analyses
Stereotypic route-tracing in experimentally caged songbirds correlates with general behavioural disinhibition
TLDR
It is suggested that improving housing conditions so that cage stereotypies do not develop would enhance the validity of laboratory-based behavioural research, and that housing conditions that cause stereotypy alter many aspects of the behavioural control of caged subjects.
Stereotypies in caged parrots, schizophrenia and autism: evidence for a common mechanism
Effect of Cage-Induced Stereotypies on Measures of Affective State and Recurrent Perseveration in CD-1 and C57BL/6 Mice
TLDR
The findings confirm previous research indicating that the implications of stereotypies for animal welfare may strongly depend on the species and strain of animal as well as on the form and expression level of the stereotypy and indicate that variation in stereotypic behaviour may represent an important source of variation in many animal experiments.

TLDR
It is proposed that stereotyped activities gain strength because of the positive feedback effect of sensory stimulation on their underlying control systems, which leads to a progressive sensitization of these neural systems.

TLDR
It is proposed that stereotyped responses mediated by nigrostriatal dopamine neurones are incompatible with eating and suggested that a second form of competition, at the neuro-anatomical level, occurs between mesolimbic and nigrostRIatal systems for motor output pathways and the ultimate expression of behaviour.
