Data from: Caspr3-deficient mice exhibit low motor learning during the early phase of the accelerated rotarod task

Haruna Hirata, Aki Takahashi, Yasushi Shimoda & Tsuyoshi Koide
Caspr3 (Contactin-associated protein-like 3, Cntnap3) is a neural cell adhesion molecule belonging to the Caspr family. We have recently shown that Caspr3 is expressed abundantly between the first and second postnatal weeks in the mouse basal ganglia, including the striatum, external segment of the globus pallidus, subthalamic nucleus, and substantia nigra. However, its physiological role remains largely unknown. In this study, we conducted a series of behavioral analyses on Capsr3-knockout (KO) mice and equivalent wild-type...

Data from: Preparation for flight: pre-fledging exercise time is correlated with growth and fledging age in burrow-nesting seabirds

Ken Yoda, Tasuya Shiozaki, Masaki Shirai, Sakiko Matsumoto, Maki Yamamoto & Tatsuya Shiozaki
Chicks of many burrow-nesting seabirds are known to repeatedly emerge from their nests (these trips being termed “excursions”) and exercise their wings prior to fledging, but this behavior is poorly documented in the literature, and thus the relationship between growth and exercise remains unclear. Here, we used infrared video cameras placed in front of streaked shearwater (Calonectris leucomelas) nests during the chick-emergence period to examine correlations between chick excursions and parameters known to be important...
