The staying Time of rats in the zone 1 (a), zone 2 (b), and zone 3 (c) of social choice test (SCT). SPS and drugs (OXT and ASB) did not affect the staying time in zone 1 (a). OXT reversed the SPS-increased of staying time in zone 2, but this could also be blocked by ASB (b). OXT reversed the SPS-induced decrease of staying time in zone 3, but this could be blocked by ASB (C). SPS = single prolonged stress, VEH = vehicle, OXT = oxytocin, ASB = atosiban. Bars represent mean ± SEM, **p < 0.01, ***p < 0.001, compared with Control-Veh; #p < 0.05, ##p < 0.01, compared with Control-OXT; @p < 0.05, @@p < 0.01, compared with SPS-OXT; &p < 0.05, compared with SPS-ASB/OXT.
