References in this bibliography have been selected from the Subject-Strain Bibliography of Inbred Strains of Mice, maintained at The Jackson Laboratory, which attempts to include all published papers dealing with specific inbred strains of mice, named genes in mice, or named transplantable tumors. We have selected all references which appear to be of behavioral interest, including reports of the effects of neurological mutations, but have omitted genetic studies conducted with these mutants. Studies using "white:, "Swiss:, or undesignated mice are not included. This bibliography covers literature published from 1922 through late 1973. The authors would like to be informed of omissions, and to receive reprints of omitted papers. The bibliography is divided into three sections. The first section includes all references in which a behavioral measure appears to be the variable of primary interest. This section is divided into 16 behavioral categories: activity, aggression, audiogenic seizures, communication, emotionality, feeding, learning, maternal, memory, psychomotor, regulation, reproduction, biorhythms, sensation, social, and miscellaneous. References are assigned to a category on the basis of their apparent emphasis. The second section includes all references in which the effects of a treatment on behavior appear to be the variables of primary interest. This section is divided into nine treatment categories: age, alcohol, central nervous system, mutations, neonatal and teratogenic, population size, pharmacological agents, genetic selection, and miscellaneous. Where multiple treatments were used, references are assigned to the category of the most important treatment. The third section contains reviews and theoretical references. Each item in the bibliography is assigned to a category in one of the three sections and given a reference number. At the end of each category is a list of the reference numbers from other categories which contain information pertinent to that category. References are arranged alphabetically within each category.
