Överskrift Stroking of the abdomen causes decreased locomotor activity in conscious male rats.
Beskrivning The specific aim of the present study was to determine if stroking in conscious rats can influence spontaneous locomotor behavior in an open-field arena. For this purpose, conscious rats were held across the scapula and the ventral side of the abdomen was stroked at a pressure of 100-150 mm H2O and at a speed of approximately 20 cm/s. The stimulation frequency was approximately 40 strokes/min and the duration 2, 5, and 10 min. Animals held for 10 min served as controls. There was a significant decrease in rearing and locomotion and a significant increase in peripheral activity in the open-field arena after the treatment. Maximal effects were obtained after 5 min of stroking. These effects were consistent with a stroking-induced sedative effect similar to that seen in this open-field arena model following neuroleptics or large doses of oxytocin.
