Asymmetry of paw usage in the laboratory mouse is an experimental model for left-right asymmetry of hand usage. Given a set number of reaches into a centrally placed food tube (an unbiased or U-world test), individual mice exhibit a number of left and right paw reaches that is reliably expressed on retesting. Whereas different inbred strains appear to have equal numbers of individual mice with a left- or a right-preferred paw after a U-world test, there are significant differences among strains… CONTINUE READING
