Behavioral assessment in the open field (A) and beam walking (B) tests. In the open field test, the EE rats showed lower locomotive activity in the total distance traveled (A, left) and lowered anxiety reflected in the % distance traveled in the center arena (A, right). In the beam walking test, the EE rats quickly traversed the elevated narrow beam (B). *, **, †, significant difference from SE rats, p < 0.01, 0.005, 0.001, respectively.
