  • Stressed animals have been known to release aversive chemosignals toward which conspecifics show avoidance-like responses. The present studies assessed whether inflammatory cytokine responses provoked by footshock stress modulate odor signals released from male rats. Male rats were exposed to 30min of intermittent footshock (60 shocks, 1.0mA, 100ms each, variable ITI of 30s) or remained in their home cages as non-stressed controls. Real time RT-PCR analysis of brain tissues indicated that… CONTINUE READING
