Social Isolation Stress Induces Anxious-Depressive-Like Behavior and Alterations of Neuroplasticity-Related Genes in Adult Male Mice
Chronic social isolation stress in adulthood reduces plasma corticosterone levels. (a) Corticosterone levels were reduced in the plasma of socially isolated adult male mice. (b) Socially isolated mice showed reduced differences between the left and right adrenal/body weight ratio. (c) There were no differences in the total body weight between group-housed (GH) and socially isolated (SI) mice. Data are presented mean ± SEM (-8 per group). ; .
