FIGURE 8.11

Automated measure of vertical (a) and horizontal (b) activity in the same animals from three different mouse strains. Data were collected over 5-min intervals for a total of 30 min. Most mice habituated to the test environment, as evidenced by the decline in activity over the duration of the experiment. Note that BALB/c mice were less active than mice from the other two strains. (Statistical significance described in detail in main text.) Source: Author’s unpublished data.
