Effects of early social experience on activity and object investigation in the ferret.

Abstract

Earlier experiments have shown that many of the effects of early social isolation in the rat may be due to deprivation of social play. The isolated ferret, like the isolated rat, is hyperactive; furthermore, its hyperactivity appears to be related to deprivation of social play. However, the relationship between object investigation and social rearing is more complex in the ferret than it is in the rat.
