Since such individual dispositions can affect the responsiveness in other aversively motivated situations, we asked in a 1st experiment whether such rats might also differ in a test of conditioned fear. Based on their levels of spontaneous open arm avoidance in the elevated plus-maze, 20… CONTINUE READING
