Abstract/OtherAbstract:
A circadian biologic time structure of grooming behavior may be detected on the basis of chronobiologic procedures. Results are presented and discussed in the broader scope of a series of behavioral chronobiologic studies with comparison of standard biometric and rhythmometric analyses. Moreover, such experiments provide a quantitative approach for a better functional understanding of psychophysiological mechanisms regulating the stress-related grooming behavior. Such circadian studies show also that chronobiology raises some working hypotheses in experimental psychology and permits the development of new heuristic concepts in the field of behavioral neuroscience.
