The rotarod test is used to assess motor coordination and balance in rodents. It is measured as latency to fall from a spinning rotarod which, in this study, is accelerating from 4 to 40 rpm in 5 min (without a training session prior to the testing).

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• rotarod Latency to fall from accelerating rotarod.
Mice: inbred w/CC7   7 strains   ♀♂   age 9-10wks   5 experimental groups
