The social contacting time (a) and its percentage in zone 3 (b) of social choice test (SCT). OXT reversed SPS-induced attenuation of contact time with the restrained rat, but this could be blocked by ASB (A-B). SPS = single prolonged stress, VEH = vehicle, OXT = oxytocin, ASB = atosiban. Bars represent mean ± SEM, *p < 0.05, ***p < 0.001, compared with Control-Veh; #p < 0.05, ###p < 0.001, compared with Control-OXT; @p < 0.05, @@@p < 0.001, compared with SPS-OXT. N = 6
