Ontogeny and interdependence of genetically selected avoidance and open-field behaviors were investigated in six genetic lines, involving 1,018 animals, and three developmental models (longitudinal, cross sectional, and generational). In selected lines, behaviors varied with age, depending upon the genetic selection; in the control (random bred) line, no such effects were found. Between the lines selected for high (RHA) and low (RLA) rates of two-way-active avoidance, ontogenetic differences in… CONTINUE READING
