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 ...
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 ...
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. ...
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 ...
