The urinary pheromone test was performed in the same container used for the OFT. We first collected urine from mice unfamiliar to the experimental groups (i.e. not cage mates) and kept it frozen. Right before the experiment, an aliquot of urine was thawed, a cotton swab was soaked in it and placed at the bottom of the container. Then a single mouse was placed inside and was allowed to explore for 5 min while videotaping the session. We measured the time directly interacting with the swab28.
