Advanced intercross lines (AIL) and interval–specific congenic strains (ISCS) were used to fine map previously coarsely defined quantitative trait loci (QTL) on Chromosomes 1,10, and 19, influencing behaviors in the open Field (OF) and light–dark (LD) paradigms in mice. F12(A × B) AIL mice (N = 1130) were phenotyped, genotyped, and mapped. The ISCS were(More)
The genetic contributions to active avoidance learning in rodents have been well established, yet the molecular basis for genetically selected line differences remains poorly understood. To identify candidate genes influencing this active avoidance paradigm, we utilized the bidirectionally selected Syracuse high- and low-avoidance (SHA and SLA) rat lines(More)
