Abstract:Prenatal stressed offspring exhibit more fearful behavior in behavioral tests, which can be reversed by environmental enrichment (EE).

Gastrin-releasing peptide receptors (GRPR) also have an important role in regulating amy…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
