Effect of changes in maternal behaviour on the physiology and behaviour of the mouse: an ethological approach to early experience
Hall, W. R.
Previous research had demonstrated how differences in the early environment of young mammals produced changes in their physiology and behaviour. The present project concentrated on the possible effects on the young, of changes in the behaviour of the mother towards them. The results revealed that the mother mouse 'had more than a supporting role in the development of her young. In fact her behaviour acted as a potent force to alter both their physiology and behaviour. The results also allowed some general conclusions concerning the measurement of emotionality.
