Table 2 Mean % trials completed by stimulus order. A trial was considered to be complete as long as a mouse took a single lick. After 120 s had elapsed without a lick, a given trial was considered over, and the next trial began. B6 mice completed significantly more trials (out of a possible 24 per session) than did D2 mice across all three stimuli with which those mice were tested.
