Strain distribution of mice in discriminated Y-maze avoidance learning: genetic and procedural differences.

The current study was conducted to characterize discriminated avoidance learning in mice by using a Y-maze task. In Experiment 1, the task parameters were manipulated, including the amount of time spent in the start arm, the amount of time to make the avoidance response, and the intertrial interval (ITI) using C57 x SJL F1 hybrid mice. Avoidance performance… (More)
