[The effect of stress in pregnant rats on the anxiety level in their offspring].

[Article in Russian]


The anxiety level was studied in offsprings of dams stressed during pregnancy. Increased number of resorptions and stillbirths was mentioned. The experimental pups (1 month old) had lower locomotion and higher anxiety levels as compared to the control animals. There were no differences in anxiety and locomotion levels in males (4 months old) between the experimental and control groups. In experimental females of this age anxiety was decreased and locomotion increased. Aggressive behavior was more expressed in the experimental animals of both sexes.
