Experiment 1 used Gria1−/− and wild-type, littermate control female mice (N = 13 per genotype), bred and housed in the life sciences support unit at Durham University. Mice were experimentally naïve at the start of testing. Mice were housed in groups of 1–5 in a temperature-controlled housing room with a 12hr light dark cycle (8am-8pm). They were approximately 17–38 weeks old at the start of testing (age range for wild-type: 17–38 weeks; age range for Gria1−/− mice: 17–34 weeks). They were maintained at 85% of their free-feeding weights (19.7 g – 28.0 g) with ad libitum access to water in their home cages. Experiment 2 used 16 experimentally naïve female C57BL6J mice purchased from Charles River, UK. Mice were housed in cages of four mice. They were approximately 10 weeks old at the starting of training. Their free-feeding weight was 16.7–20.5 g. All other details were the same as for Experiment 1.
