Preference for social novelty test
Mice were evaluated in a three-chambered choice task to determine preference for a novel social stimulus
(a newly-presented unfamiliar mouse) versus a former social stimulus (an already-investigated mouse).
and then tested for social novelty preference by adding a second, less-familiar
conspecific mouse to the apparatus.
