Table 1 Summary of neocortical and related phenotypic measures in 34 BXD recombinant inbred strains and their parental strains. Measured neocortical volume was corrected for the effects of shrinking produced by fixation and embedding in celloidin by multiplying each value by the ratio of the original brain weight to the measured fixed total brain volume. Since the specific gravity of fresh brain is just slightly more than 1.00, brain weight in grams can be taken as a close approximation of brain volume in cubic centimeters. Thus, in vivo brain volume was estimated by fresh brain weight in grams, as provided for each mouse by the Mouse Brain Library. Noncortical volume was estimated as measured total volume minus neocortical volume and was similarly corrected for shrinkage.
