N normal phenotype
• some mice die by P21
• however, mice that survive exhibit normal life expectancy

nervous system
• mice exhibit normal prefrontal cortex, cingulate cortex, amygdala, thalamus, nucleus accumbens, motor cortex and neuronal viability
• failure of neurons to migrate from their birthplace or to stop within their correct layer
• infrapyramidal mossy fibre tract are misrouted amongst the CA3 neurons compared to in wild-type mice
• misrouted axons form aberrant synapses within the stratum pyramidale
• disrupted organization
• split in to a bilaminar stratum
• in the stratum radiatum and stratum oriens
• in the superficial layer of CA3
• pyramidal neurons exhibit dendrites with thorny excrescences from the misrouted mossy fibre tracts on both proximal and distal apical dendrites compared with wild-type cells
• however, the number of branch points is normal

• mice exhibit normal sensorimotor abilities (olfaction, vision, balance and self-righting, eye blink, ear twitch, whisker-orientation and neuromuscular strength) and rearing
• in a cross-maze, mice exhibit increased latency in reaching the escape platform over the course of the acquisition period, decreased arm choice accuracy and increased escape latency compared with wild-type mice
• in an elevated plus maze, mice spend more time in open arms and enter them more often with increased head dips and fewer stretched attend postures compared with wild-type mice
• impaired novel object recognition when presented with a familiar and new object
• increased distance traveled in an open field in male and female mice
• hyperactivity in the object recognition test with longer exploration time in both phases of the trial
• increased activity in an elevated plus maze

• from P14 onward

• failure of neurons to migrate from their birthplace or to stop within their correct layer
