Abstract Steroids play an integral role in orchestrating embryonic development, and they can affect a suite of phenotypic traits, including learning and behavior. Endocrine disrupting compounds (EDCs) can alter steroid-dependent phenotypic traits during embryonic development. Bisphenol-A (BPA) is an EDC that disrupts the action of estrogen, and recent work indicates that BPA can affect learning and behavior similarly to estrogen. We exposed red-eared slider turtle ( Trachemys scripta ) eggs to B...

Abstract Introduction The present study tested the hypothesis that at any given ambient temperature (Ta), thermal comfort (TC) is not only a function of the temperature per se , but is also influenced by the temperatures rate of change and direction. Methods Twelve healthy young (age: 23 ± 3) male participants completed experimental trials where Ta increased from 15° to 40 °C (heating) and then decreased from 40 to 15 °C (cooling). In one trial (FAST), the rate of change in Ta was maintained at ...

Abstract Noise-exposed rat pups provide a model of early deprivation of sensory input to the central auditory system, allowing the study of developmental neuroplasticity. Our previous results have demonstrated that a brief exposure of rats to broadband noise (125 dB SPL 8 min, 14th postnatal day) at the onset of hearing resulted in an altered intensity perception and frequency discrimination in adulthood despite normal hearing thresholds. In this study, we assessed the gap-detection ability and ...

Abstract The study of individual differences in behavior and physiology has attracted considerable interest among behavioral biologists. Important questions include how early in life such differences emerge and to what extent they remain stable across development. Due to the demanding nature of longitudinal studies, there is still a lack of information on this in mammals, especially in large, long-lived species. Our aim in this study was to look for stable individual differences in behavior and ...

Abstract Caffeine is often consumed to mitigate degraded alertness associated with sleep deprivation. Both caffeine and sleep deprivation have been implicated in cardiovascular disease, but evidence is largely anecdotal. We determined the effects of sleep deprivation and caffeine on markers of cardiac autonomic activity. Twelve healthy young adults completed an 18-day laboratory study. They were exposed to three 48 h sessions of acute total sleep deprivation (TSD), each separated by three recove...

Abstract Medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC), a forebrain structure, is involved in many brain functions such as learning and memory. In the present study, the effect of intra-mPFC microinjection of oxytocin, atosiban, morphine and naloxone was investigated on memory processing. Two guide cannulas were implanted into the right and left sides of the mPFC in ketamine and xylazine-anesthetized rats. To assess spatial memory function MWM test was performed by four training sessions of four trials. On da...

Abstract Agonistic behaviour is common in an encounter between two crustaceans. It often causes limb disability and consumes a lot of energy, which is harmful for the growth and survival of commercially important crustaceans. In the present study, we mainly focused on the agonistic behaviour of the Chinese mitten crab, Eriocheir sinensis , which is an important species of the aquaculture industry in China. We recorded agnostic behaviour with a high-definition camera and preliminarily evaluated t...

Abstract Background We investigated the biomarkers of insulin action as well as changes in free fatty acids and lactate concentration after an acute soccer session pre and post training with caloric-restricted diet versus diet alone in type 2 diabetes (T2D) patients. Methods Fifty-one middle-aged (61.1 ± 6.4 years) T2D patients were randomly allocated to the soccer+diet group (SDG) or the diet group (DG). The control group comprised T2D patients observing a caloric-restricted diet who did not re...

Abstract Rodent self-grooming is a behavior that, besides its cleaning function, can be led by arousing experiences. A putative trait-like nature of this behavior was studied. With the aim of providing information about how grooming behavior can reflect different behavioral processes, an individual differences approach was adopted. Fifty nine male Wistar-derived rats were submitted to five 30-min long behavioral tests. These tests were selected based on the behavioral processes they entangle. El...

Abstract Several studies in rodents and layer chickens have demonstrated that insulin upregulates hypothalamic AKT-mediated signaling and expression of proopiomelanocortin (POMC, the precursor of alpha-melanocyte stimulating hormone, an anorexigenic peptide) and suppresses appetite in these animals. However, a previous study has also reported that insulin fails to suppress food intake in broiler chicks. In the present study, no significant differences were observed in hypothalamic AKT and forkhe...
