Observer behaviour after electric shock toward foot-shocked cagemate mice. a Schematic diagram of the experiment. b Outline of the behavioural paradigm. Graphs showing the distance travelled of observer during each 1-min period (c) and the total distance travelled (f). Graphs showing the proportion of time spent immobile of observer during each 1-min period (e) and the total time spent immobile (f). Graphs showing the time of sniffing the demonstrator cage during each 1-min period (g) and the total time of sniffing (h) in observer mice. All data are presented as the mean ± SEM. Statistical significance is represented by asterisks: *p < 0.05. The p-values were calculated using two-way repeated-measures analysis of variance (ANOVA) in c, e, and g, and one-way ANOVA in d, f, and h. SEM standard error of the mean
