8. Why does lifelong conventional housing reduce the sociability of female mice?

Compared to peers raised in well-resourced, 'enriched' environments ('EE'), female laboratory mice from conventional barren cages are more aggressive to their cage-mates, and less sociable with familiar non-cage-mates (especially if these too are from conventional housing, 'CH'). But how do such...
