The relative influence of litter size at birth and dam body weight at parturition on lactational performance was determined with five among-line crossfostering experiments involving 17 populations of mice. Included were lines selected for postweaning growth and maternal performance, and unselected controls. Twelve-day litter weight of a crossfostered litter(More)
A Transition Controllable Noise Source (TCNS) generates substrate noises with controlled transitions in size, interstage delay, and direction. The noises are measured in a 100-ps 100-uV resolution by a linear substrate voltage detector that uses a front-end PMOS source follower probing substrate potential and a back-end latch comparator for(More)
Crossfostering was performed using lines selected for increased 6-week body weight (H6) and increased 3-to 6-week postweaning gain (M16) and their reciprocal F1 crosses as nurse dams in the selected crossfostering group, and base population controls (C2, ICR) and their reciprocal F1 crosses in the control group. The offspring suckled were H6, M16 and F2(More)
We conducted three experiments in order to investigate the effect of stimulus orientation on negative priming (NP). Using the picture naming task, Murray (1995) reported the occurrence of semantic NP by rotated distractors. As the rotation of picture stimuli seems to have little effect to reduce distractor interference, in the present study we used the(More)
