    Prog Neuropsychopharmacol Biol Psychiatry 27:21-30. 2003
    ..In conclusion: These results show that social housing can enhance coping with stress in female rats, whereas in male rats group housing did not have a positive influence on stress-sensitivity...

    Neuroscience 142:1293-302. 2006
    ..Therefore, cyclic estradiol administration apparently preserves the integrity of signal transduction cascades in limbic structures, which may protect against the harmful consequences of recurrent stress...
