St.-Petersburg State University.


Anxiety and locomotion were studied in offsprings of female rats subjected to everyday stress (one a day being displaced into another cage with pregnant rats) during the 3d stage of pregnancy. At the age of 1 month, the prenatally stressed rats had higher anxiety and lower locomotion in comparison with control animals. At the age of 3 month, the prenatally stressed females did not significantly differ from the control in the level of anxiety and locomotion, while the males demonstrated lower ambulation than the control animals.
