A third method, euthanasia by carbon dioxide asphyxiation, induces a hypoxic state and leads to activation of MAPK signal processes of cell survival (Risbud et al., 2005). Fourth, a rapid decapitation without anesthesia may trigger a stress response, and modulate MAPK signaling in the prefrontal cortex and the hippocampus ( Meller et al., 2003 ).
