Abstract

Separate age groups of C57BL/6NNia mice were tested for within- and between-session habituation of locomotor behavior using a Digiscan System for simultaneous automated gathering of 23 locomotor variables. A computer program, Raw Data Input Program (RDIP) was developed for the reformatting and transfer of raw data samples to a spreadsheet/database management system, and a method for summarization, analysis and presentation of the multivariate data is described. It is concluded that large samples of multivariate locomotor activity data can be effectively managed using a single microcomputer and commercially available software packages.
