Gender-Specific Neuroimmunoendocrine Response to Treadmill Exercise in 3xTg-AD Mice
All the behavioral tests do consistently refer to presence of BPSD-like symptoms as a characteristic of early stages of the disease in 3xTg-AD mice, with an important gender component. The effects of exercise are gender dependent. (a) The neophobia in the corner test was increased in both male and female 3xTg-AD mice. (b and c) The anxious profile could be also observed in several variables measured by the open-field test and dark-light box.

Values are the mean ± SEM, . Statistics: , , and compared to the corresponding non-Tg;, compared to the corresponding TgSED.
