Temporal Patterns of Rodent Behavior in the Elevated Plus Maze Test

Risultato della ricerca: Other

Abstract

The aim of the present study was to evaluate, by means of a temporal pattern analysis, rat’s behavior in theelevated plus maze test. A specific software called THEME has been used. On the basis of an ethogramencompassing 24 behavioral elements, results demonstrated that 14 components represented the 98% of thedisplayed activities. 145 different temporal patterns have been detected; length distribution of such patternsshowed that three-, four-, and five-elements patterns were more represented than two-elements ones. Finally, acomplex temporal pattern encompassing 8 behavioral elements has been discussed. Present article demonstratedthe presence of complex temporal patterns characterizing the behavior of rats in the elevated plus maze test.
