Habituation Results. Mean (± SEM) investigation times for unilateral bulb-x mice during 50 sec habitation (1-6) and dishabituation (T) trials. Data in the left column (controls) are from adult mice that had normal nares (n = 9). Data in the right column (occluded) are from adult mice that received perinatal UNO contralateral to their subsequent adult bulb-x (n = 9). Note that results from the same groups of mice, retested with increasingly diluted test odors, are shown in the first three rows. The fourth row depicts data from a replication of the experiment with a novel cohort of mice (controls n = 7; occluded n = 8). However, only data for the most diluted test odor (2% EB stock in IA stock) is shown. Asterisks denote statistical significance of differences in mean investigation times toward the novel stimulus ("T" = trial seven) compared to habitation stimulus in trial six (paired t-test); * p < 0.05
