Figure 1

Histograms of histologic phenotypes for inbred strains of mice.   A. Brain weight differences are apparent between the three categories (F4,28 = 82.1, P < .001). Asterisk indicates significant differences on post-hoc tests (P < .005). B. Striatal volume. There are significant differences in striatal volume between the low brain weight strains (A/J, DBA.2J) and the high brain weight strains (BALB/cJ, BXD5). C57BL6/J mice differ from the high, but not low brain weight strains (F4,28 = 28.9, P < .001). Asterisk indicates significant differences on post-hoc tests (P < .005). C. Neuron-packing density in the striatum. In general, brains with smaller striata have greater neuron-packing density (F4,28 = 17.6, P < .001). Asterisks indicate significant differences on post-hoc tests (P < .005). D. Neuron number in the striatum. There are no significant difference in striatal neuronal number among the five inbred strains (F4,28 = 2.0. ns).
