  1. Values are shown +/- SEM with experimental n in parentheses. t-test was used to measure statistical significance compared with wild-type. *: p < 0.01, all others: p > 0.05. n varies within a genotype because different measures require different image quality. All quantitative analyses were restricted to VS1 neurons.
