At 1day post-SE, P15-SE rats confirmed no deficit within the Barnes maze yet have been hyperexploratory in an open box in comparison with their littermate controls. by contrast, P21- and P30-SE rats exhibited markedly impaired functionality within the Barnes maze and exhibited considerably lowered open box exploration suggestive of anxiety-like habit. those behavioral alterations have been brief in P15 rats yet extra power in P21 and enduring in P30 rats after KA-SE.
