N
• in the Morris water maze, mutants have a longer latency to locate the platform on the first 2 days of training than controls, however performance on the probe test and reversal probe test were normal, indicating normal hippocampal-mediated spatial learning
• open field activity and anxiety are not affected
• on reversal discriminations, mutants require more trials than controls, indicating impaired reversal learning
• mutants show increased latency performance on the cued-platform test, indicating a delay in striatal-dependent cued learning

nervous system
• marker analysis indicates an increase in numbers of PV+ and SST+ striatal GABAergic interneurons
• distribution of striatal interneurons is altered, with fewer cells of the population located in the medial (associative) regions and more cells in the lateral (sensorimotor) areas
• reduction in the numbers of PV+ GABAergic interneurons in the primary somatosensory cortex (28% loss) and the orbitofrontal cortex (31% loss)
• marker analysis indicates an increase in numbers of PV+ and SST+ striatal GABAergic interneurons
• however, striatum appears normal
• 31% reduction in PV+ cells in the orbitofrontal cortex
• 28% loss of PV+ cells in primary somatosensory cortex
