Behavioral changes across novelty habituation: Contextual modulation of self-grooming after a stress event
Grooming is a widespread behavior in the animal kingdom primarily geared towards the care of the body surface; nonetheless, other behavioral functions have been investigated and postulated. For example, rodents display ...
Muscarinic and glutamatergic regulation of self-grooming behavior and ultrasonic vocalizations in the context of open-field habituation in rats
We tested whether pharmacological impairment of OF-habituation after the administration (i.p.) of scopolamine (SCP; muscarinic antagonist) or MK-801 (MK; NMDA antagonist) was able to disrupt or alter grooming syntaxes. ...
Habituation and spatial memory in the context of emotional regulation: Behavioral and genetic mechanisms underlying context information-processing and de-arousal grooming
Habituation is the ability to passively reduce a response after repeated or prolonged exposures to a particular stimulus. From a cognitive perspective, habituation is a basic, information-gating process that contributes ...
Age, experience, and neurobehavioral domain: dissociable effects of environmental enrichment and social isolation on brain and behavior in adult and aged rats
In rats, environmental enrichment (EE) is a form of physical-social stimulation used for modeling the impact of optimal developmental conditions on animal’s phenotype. When implemented during early life, EE improves animal’s ...
