A test mouse started from the light zone. a Time spent in the light zone. b The number of entries to the dark zone. Reverse tests initiated from the dark zone. n = 5–7. c Time spent in the light zone when started from the dark zone. d The number of entries. e Elevated plus maze test. Bars represent time spent in the open arm for a 5-min period. f Tail suspension test. Bars represent immobility time. g Sucrose preference test.
