When placed in a novel environment, mice tend to explore for a period of time, and then reduce the level of exploration. This reduction in locomotor or exploratory behavior is known as habituation and can occur within a single session or across multiple sessions (intrasession and intersession habituation, respectively). In this study, mice were assessed for both types of habituation.
