This chapter presents brief overviews of the growth of the Norway rat pup and differentiation of behavioral systems. There follows a kind of “ethogram” of early postnatal behavior in Rattus norvegicus, intended to put into a more natural context some of the processes of sensory and motor development, with an emphasis on information that can be used for designing and interpreting tests with immature rats.
