Social interaction testing. Interaction with an unknown social partner revealed an increase in anxiety-related behaviour in rAAV-dnCAMKIV treated animals. The total amount of social behaviours was decreased in those mice, mainly due to a significant decrease in approaching and following the social partner. Social avoidance/anxiety-related behaviour (stretched-attend posture and evade upon contact) was increased in animals expressing dnCaMKIV compared to EMPTY (dnCaMKIV: n = 11, EMPTY: n = 11; p < 0.05 is indicated by asterisks). Means ± S.E.M. are shown.
