Adult male mice were allowed to freely explore a 50 x 50 cm Plexiglas arena divided into two sections by white walls (1 Lux) and black walls (0 Lux), scored for total distance traveled and time spent in each compartment by an observer blind to genotype (Wei et al, 2010). Hippocampal mRNA was extracted from each mouse for use in qPCR analysis as previously described (Wei et al, 2010). This experiment involved 6 BDS male pups born at PND 21 for analysis (Wei et al, 2010). This experiment involved 6 BDS male pups who had their respective genotype mRNA extracted and isolated for use qPCR analysis as previously (Wei et al, 2010).
