We tested whether boldness is associated with attenuation of the physiological stress response in behaviorally selected lines of zebrafish Danio rerio. We measured three component behaviors of boldness: cortisol levels under control and stressed conditions, growth rate, and expression of key genes linked to the hypothalamic-pituitary-interrenal axis in the brain. Surprisingly, bold animals did not differ from shy animals with respect to cortisol levels. However, significant differences between… CONTINUE READING
