Figure 2 : Evaluation of coordination and balance in the rotarod.

Motor coordination was assessed by the rotarod. Stress and unstressed groups showed equivalent level of coordination and balance while on the rod.
(A) Stressed mothers outperformed the undisturbed mothers in the early stages of the test (4 trial/day1), but their performance leveled out alongside the undisturbed during the second day of training.
(B) No differences were observed in motor skills among the juveniles derived from either stress or undisturbed females.
