[Learning of rats predisposed to catalepsy in Morris water test].

[Article in Russian]


It was shown that GC rats predisposed to catalepsy do not differ from Wistar rats in success rate or latency (time of finding of the hidden escape platform) in the Morris water test. However, unlike Wistar, GC rats are inclined to passive drift and longer floating episodes. Rats of the MD+ strain predisposed to hyperkinesis in the form of horizontal pendulum-like movements of the head and upper limb girdle show longer latency and lower rate of successful trials than Wistar or MD-, rats selected for absence of the pendulum-like movements.
