Research output: Contribution to journalArticleDissemination

Abstract

A study with rats shows that exposure to juvenile stress affects the reactivity to novel stressful situations in adulthood and may increase the risk to develop certain psychopathologies. Animals maintained in low- stress environments in adulthood show less interest for new situations, whereas if they are exposed to an intense stress there is an increase in animal's anxiety. It is noteworthy to say that juvenile and adult stress separately do not cause effects in tests of anxiety, but juvenile stress potentiates in some way the latent effects of adult stress.
