Previous work has shown that systematic individual differences between male Wistar rats can be detected in tasks like the elevated plus-maze, or the open field. Here, we investigated whether individual profiles of anxiety, as measured with the plus-maze, may predict behavioral response profiles in other tasks where anxiety, aversion, or depressive behaviors are important. Male Wistar rats were initially screened: (A) in an open field; and (B) in an elevated plus-maze. Based on their plus-maze… CONTINUE READING
