Adult mice of the C57BL/6J strain were subjected to an acute mild stress at different periods before the choice trial of a spontaneous alternation test. The stressful event was either inescapable (forced exploration in a brightly lit open field) or escapable (temporary entries into an adjacent dark chamber). While unstressed control mice alternated above chance in each condition, mice subjected to inescapable stress did not alternate when forced exposure to the open field occurred during the… CONTINUE READING
