Impaired motor function can disrupt behavioral responses upon sensory stimuli. To ensure that behavioral responses were not due to impaired motor function, motor coordination of the animals was measured using a 1.25 inch diameter rotarod (Stoelting Co.) as described previously (37) with the rate of rotation increased from the starting speed of four rotations per minute (RPM) to a maximum of 40 RPM within 120 s. After 120 s, rods consistently rotated at 40 RPM for another 180 s. One acclimation run was performed before the test run.
