Two cerebellar mutants, staggerer and reeler, and their congenic nonmutants were used in this experiment. Experimental animals were subjected to intense rotational stimulation on a tilted plane during the first 3 weeks of life, while controls were left nonstimulated. The capacity for mating, as evidenced by vaginal plugs or the occurrence of pregnancy, was assayed during two periods: between 36 and 89 days of age (Experiment A) and between 90 and 120 days of age (Experiment B). During… CONTINUE READING
