Table 1 SPS did not affect body weight in males or females

From: Sex differences in the traumatic stress response: PTSD symptoms in women recapitulated in female rats

Group Body weight in grams (SEM)
Baseline Post-test
Male Ctrl 297.2 (3.4) 350.0* (7.1)
SPS 297.5 (4.9) 341.9* (7.9)
Female Ctrl 191.5 (3.0) 213.9* (5.4)
SPS 194.5 (3.0) 214.8* (3.2)
  1. Rats were weighed before undergoing SPS or control conditions (baseline) and on the day of the dexamethasone suppression test (post-test). SPS did not affect body weight, and all rats gained weight over the course of the experiment (*, vs baseline). As expected, all females weighed less than males. Data presented as mean ± SEM. Significance set at P < .05 (indicated by asterisk) for planned pairwise comparisons (Bonferroni). Refer to Additional file 1 for full statistical results
