&NA; An electrical traumatic stimulus given to rats had both short‐ and long‐range effects. The short‐range (4‐wk.) effect was marked on weight gain, activity, and defecation; marked but brief on certain social behaviors; and less marked on urination and vocalization. Weight gain of control rats (interpreted as a social effect) was also affected. The long‐range (10–14 mo. after trauma) results were suggestive of a residual effect of trauma. Other related experiments of one of us17 showed a…

Old (7 months of age) and young (2 months) male rats were divided into groups matched for spontaneous exploratory activity and for age. Experimental rats in the two age categories were then

Findings from electrophysiological measurement of LC activity support the view that the LC is involved in stress-induced depression, and are consistent with a proposed mechanism that attributes behavioral disturbance in the model to disinhibition of LC neurons arising from subnormal activation of inhibitory alpha-2 receptors.

This research is an innovation in that an attempt is made to breed dogs for abnormality, and it now appears that they could breed closely for many generations with little inbreeding depression, viz., brother-sister.
