Abstract

Objectives: Previous studies have shown that dietary prebiotics have the potential to improve memory, alter social behavior, and reduce anxiety-like behaviors in rodents. The present research sought to expand upon such results and describe the effects of feeding prebiotics early in life on...

Abstract

The neural circuitry for social behavior and aggression appears to be evolutionarily conserved across the vertebrate subphylum and involves a complex neural network that includes the hypothalamus as a key structure. In the present study, we evaluated the changes in monoamine levels in the...

Abstract

To gain further insight in risk factors related to feather pecking, this thesis investigated the effects of genetic background and social environment on feather pecking and related behavioural characteristics in laying hens. In several experiments, behaviour, performance and physiology of...

Abstract

Monoaminergic systems play a crucial role in linking behaviour and physiology. Here the physiological and behavioural effects of metal exposure in relation to monoaminergic systems were considered by exposing rainbow trout dyads, demonstrating stable dominance relationships, to cadmium or lead....

Abstract

Between October 14 and November 15 1996 at the Aquaculture Research Station in Tromsø (Norway) pairs (32 fish total) of male Arctic charr (Salvelinus alpinus) were allowed to interact for 4 days in the absence of females. Agonistic behaviour was recorded and plasma glucose, hydrocortisone,...

Abstract

The relationship between social interactions, brain serotonergic activity, and 2 behavioural patterns in juvenile Arctic charr (S. alpinus), feeding and spontaneous swimming activity, were investigated. Dominant and subordinate individuals were observed during rearing in pairs, followed by rearing...
