We determined the interaction between such individual behavioural profiles as locomotor response to novelty or social position and the activation (Fos expression) of the brain's limbic regions following chronic laboratory and social interaction stress. Male Wistar rats (n=45), housed separately and handled for 2 weeks, were divided into high (HR) and low… CONTINUE READING
