Activity (minutes with transponder signal) on day 1.-10., 11.-20., 21.-30., 31.-40., 41.-50. and 51.-60. after introduction of SE- and UE-sons into the unfamiliar social groups. SE-sons: sons whose mothers had lived in a stable social environment during pregnancy and lactation; UE-sons: sons whose mothers had lived in an unstable social environment during pregnancy and lactation. Data are shown as means and standard error. Decrease of activity of SE- and UE-sons over time from day 1 to day 60: Two-way analysis of covariance with repeated measures, p = 0.008. Comparison of activity between the two groups from day 1 to day 60: Two-way analysis of covariance with repeated measures, p = 0.117. All statistics were two-tailed, nSE-sons = 8, nUE-sons = 8
