A PC-linked digital video camera was mounted above the arenas. Each arena was virtually divided into 16 zones using SMART software (Panlab, Spain). Four main parameters were measured: 1) total distance traveled across the arena (cm), 2) average maximum speed at which the animal traveled, 3) number of entries the animal made into a different zone, and 4) total resting time. The enclosures were thoroughly cleaned both before and after each testing period. ) in a separate room where no other people or animals were present, with a low noise level and controlled temperature (70–72°F).

42 Animal Behavior: An Evolutionary Approach Methods Male Sprague-Dawley rats were given CI using repeated colorectal distension (CRD) at different time intervals and for varying durations starting at PND 8, 10 or 14. Control rats were handled by the investigator without any intracolonic insertion. Further experiments were done on adult rats. Digestive outcomes (food and water consumption, fecal and urinary outputs) were measured using metabolic cages. Exploratory behavior was measured using digital video tracking in an open field.

Altered Behavior and Digestive Outcomes in Adult Male Rats Primed with Minimal Colon Pain as Neonates Jing Wang, Chunping Gu and Elie D.
