Natural variations in maternal care in the rat influence the development of neuronal systems that regulate endocrine and behavioral responses to stress. Thus, as adults, rats that received higher levels of maternal licking/grooming (LG) in infancy are less 'fearful' in response to novelty, compared with adult offspring of Low LG mothers. The present study examined the influence of maternal care on behavioral and neuronal responses to a more specific, localizable form of threat using an… CONTINUE READING
