Influence of the genotype on the formation of aggressive and submissive behavior in mice
The structure both of aggressive and of submissive behavior, developing as a result of agonistic interaction, is hereditarily determined and differs in mice of different strains.
Prolonged experience of victory and defeat, promoting the formation of stereotypes of aggressive and submissive behavior, leads to a genetically determined change in the original characteristics of agonistic behavior.
In submissive animals of different strains, different mechanisms of inhibition of the manifestations of aggressiveness of the partners attacking them may develop.
