These animals showed a severe and long-lasting depression of spontaneous motor activity. Relative to nonshocked animals of the same line that were monitored simultaneously, the home-cage spontaneous activity of these animals was depressed for more than 30 days.

This evidence consisted of showing that giving an α2 receptor-blocking drug to the stressed animals could not increase burst firing of their LC neurons, whereas giving the drug to normal, unstressed animals was quite able to accomplish this.
