Fig. 1

Graphical representation of the semi-naturalistic environment consisting of a less sheltered outdoor part and a more sheltered indoor part. The figure shows the unfamiliar social group where UE- and SE-sons were placed in (UE-sons: sons whose mothers had lived in an unstable social environment during pregnancy and lactation; SE-sons: sons whose mothers had lived in a stable social environment during pregnancy and lactation). Blue cavy: SE-son, red cavy: UE-son. Big cavy in the middle of the less sheltered outdoor part: adult male, cavies at the top and the bottom: adult females. RFID-antennae for measuring activity were located around plastic tubes in front of each of the four wooden houses of the less sheltered outdoor part and around a plastic tube that connected the two parts of the semi-naturalistic environment via a ramp
