This chapter explores the relationship between physiological and behavioral traits commonly considered in animal personality assessments, discussing the physiological responses to stress and the activity of the hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal axis (HPA), the sympatho-adrenomedullary pathway (SAM), and the hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis (HPG). It also presents evidence on linking the neurotransmitters serotonin and dopamine, as well as cortical brain structures such as the hippocampus, to behavioral variations.

Keywords:   animal personality, stress, hypothalamic-pituitary-adrenal, sympatho-adrenomedullary pathway, sam, hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal, hpg, neurotransmitters, serotonin, dopamine
