Glucocorticoid reactivity is often used as a biomarker of emotional stress status in animals and man. Likewise, behavioural responses of individuals to standardized stresses are also widely used to assess the magnitude of perceived stress. Unfortunately, there is little evidence that widely used physiological measures and widely used behavioural measures yield similar, or even correlated, results. The current study provides an explicit test of the relationship between the two approaches. Dwarf… CONTINUE READING
