Sex dimorphic patterns of exploratory behavior in the open-field, passive defensive behavior and emotionality were studied in anosmic rats. It was show that the long-time anosmia increased the level of exploratory and locomotor activities in male rats and changed their behavior in stress situations from passive to active form.
