Abstract Pups were reared in partial social and sensory isolation for 1 week between the fourth and fifth weeks of age. Emergence from isolation is characterized by intense behavioral arousal, abnormally short latencies of visual evoked potentials (EP) and marked desynchronization of the EEG with paroxysmal or continuous rhythmic 11–16 c/sec activity. Recovery is generally rapid and by 7 days after emergence from isolation, behavior and EEG activity are apparently normal. These findings are… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper

Changes in EEG alpha frequency and evoked response latency during solitary confinement.
TLDR
Experimental 5s who had been in prison longer had shorter VEP latencies than relative newcomers to the prison and VEP latency, which decreased with continued solitary confinement, was shorter for these 5s than for control 5s whose VEPLatency did not change over the same period. Expand
Effect of chronic undernutrition and/or visual deprivation upon the visual evoked potential from the developing rat brain
Maturation of the visual evoked potential and the response of the visual cortex to increasing frequencies of light stimulation were studied across seven ages (12, 13, 14, 16, 20, 30, and 45 days) inExpand
Testosterone, early experience and behavioral arousal in a novel environment.
TLDR
It was concluded that testosterone can influence behavioral arousal in chicks but that the effect is dependent upon both dose and previous environmental experience. Expand

TLDR
A more complete understanding of the evolutionary and developmental processes underlying the integrative development of the brain and behavior in different species is needed. Expand
The Physiological Background of the Electric Response Audiometry
In the chapter written by Professor Hallowell Davis the clinical use of ERA (Electric Response Audiometry) in audiology is described in full detail including the early response (BERA) and theExpand
Mechanisms mediating the production of environmentally induced brain changes.
TLDR
Evidence is presented to suggest that the arousal reaction (orienting response) may be a major mediating mechanism by showing that the aroused histories of stimulus-enriched and stimulus-deprived animals are different, and that the properties and consequences of the aroused reaction are such as may account for much current knowledge of environmental effects.

Training of instrumental responses in dogs socially reinforced by humans
TLDR
It was evidenced that tactile stimulation plays an important role in social reward, and a strong rewarding effect of pleasurable sensory stimuli occurs in the formation of the bond between dog and human and in the learning of different tasks. Expand
Implicit attention to negative social, in contrast to nonsocial, words in the Stroop task differs between individuals high and low in loneliness: Evidence from event-related brain microstates
TLDR
The present study provides the first evidence that negative social stimuli are differentiated from negative nonsocial stimuli more quickly in the lonely than nonlonely brains, and implicated the neural circuits reminiscent of orienting and executive control aspects of attention as contributing to these differences.

Effect of α-methyltyrosine on the electrocorticogram of unrestrained rats
Abstract The effects of α-methyltyrosine (αMT) alone and in combination with other treatments were examined in rats with chronically implanted cortical electrodes. Multiple doses of αMT produced aExpand
CONCEPTS OF AUTISM: A REVIEW
TLDR
Rutter feels that social withdrawal, severe abnormalities of language development, and a variety of ritualistic compulsive phenomena, including stereotopies, are central or core diagnostic features of the autistic syndrome beginning in infancy. Expand

Effect of visual deprivation during postnatal maturation on the electroencephalogram of the cat.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the behavioral deficits produced by the exclusion of the adequate stimulus from the retina during the postnatal developmental period does not necessarily produce electrophysiological abnormalities in the visual cortex and that these profound behavioral deficits may be very rapidly altered when the proper conditions are utilized.

The work described here was undertaken for purposes other than the study of circadia'n rhythms, but as the results show it bears significantly upon the problem of diurnal activity and the manner inExpand
Neurochemical and behavioral effects of isolation-rearing in the dog.
Abstract Young puppies reared in partial isolation for one week from 4–5 weeks of age showed behavioral abnormalities, being hyperactive with diffuse reactions. Significant changes also occurred inExpand
Behavioural effects of differential early experience in the dog.
TLDR
Differences in behaviour, heart rate and EEG activity were evident in the three differentially reared groups of dogs and were attributed to the effects of handling and isolation in the experimental groups as compared to the control group. Expand

TLDR
This concept regards the common sequences of neuro-ontogenetic changes in various non-precocial mammals as adaptive periods of behavioral development, the most dramatic and clearly defined period being the period of integration, which underlies the critical period of socialization. Expand
Approach/withdrawal variables in the development of social behaviour in the dog.
TLDR
Findings support the critical period of socialization hypothesis and Pavlovian concepts of the ontogeny of external inhibition in dogs, suggesting an increment in socialization or emotional attachment to man. Expand
Stereotyped Behaviors of Chimpanzees: Relation to General Arousal and Alternative Activities
TLDR
Evidence suggests a positive relationship between arousal and rocking and swaying; the relationship of arousal to other stereotyped acts was not as regular and no behavior in the repertoire of mother-raised animals was found to be homologous to Rock-Sway. Expand
EFFECTS OF VISUAL DEPRIVATION ON MORPHOLOGY AND PHYSIOLOGY OF CELLS IN THE CATS LATERAL GENICULATE BODY.
TLDR
Single-unit recordings in the optic tract and lateral geniculate body of kittens in which one eye had been deprived of vision are described, and an anatomical examination of the visual pathways in these animals are examined. Expand
