[The characteristics of a change in the congenital and acquired forms of behavior in rats with genetic catalepsy].

[Article in Russian]


In two groups of rats--outbred control rats and GC line ones the behaviour in the open field was studied, as well as alimentary situational instrumental conditioned reflex was elaborated. Rats of GC line were less mobile in the open field as compared with the control ones; their investigating reflex was low; several parameters showed a higher level of agitation and fear. Handling of rats of GC line improves these behavioural parameters and brings them closer to the norm. Elaboration of alimentary situational conditioned reflex in rats of GC line is delayed as compared with the control ones. Passive-defensive reflex expressed in the form of cataleptic stupor, is of dominant character and significantly prevails over cognitive and alimentary reflexes.
