The grip strength test is used to measure neuromuscular function as maximal muscle strength of forelimbs, and combined forelimbs and hindlimbs. These are assessed by grasping a grid that is connected to a sensor. Three trials are carried out in succession measuring forelimb strength only, followed by three successive trials measuring the combined forelimb/hindlimb grip strength.

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• grip strength Several trials.
Mice: inbred w/CC8   8 strains   ♀♂   age 8-10wks   5 experimental groups
