Figure 7 : Relative anxiety levels as measured in the elevated plus maze.

The percentage of time spent by the mice exploring both arms (open and closed) is computed to reveal anxiety levels in the animal. (A) Female stressed mice spent more time inside the closed arms of the maze compared to unstressed group (t=2.35, *p<0.05). (B) Litters derived from stressed group also spent a significant amount of time in the closed arms as compared to the controls.  (t=1.734, *p<0.05).
