Loss of behavioural dominance in male mice infected with Trichinella spiralis.

Abstract

Trichinella spiralis infections may lead to the loss of behavioural dominance among male mice. Reversals of dominance order first appear at the time when newborn larvae are released into the circulation of the host. The duration of dominance reversals bears no relationship to the number of muscle larvae harboured.
