Sixteen male rats raised in social isolation from weaning exhibited disorientation and inability to achieve intromission in 2 or 3 copulation tests with receptive females. Four other males raised under presumably similar conditions, but tested at a slightly older age in a smaller arena, exhibited normal sexual behaviour. The only controlled factor to which aberrant sexual behaviour could be attributed was social isolation. Although social isolation is apparently necessary to produce aberrant sexual behaviour in the male rat, other unidentified experimental factors are also necessary to bring it about. © 1965.
