If you are interested in understanding the behavioral phenotype of genetically altered mice, this second edition of Jacqueline Crawley's tersely named monograph on mouse behavioral testing should be your initial point of reference. Whether you are an established behavioral neuroscientist, a basic molecular biologist whose interactions with mice are solely at the tissue level, or anyone in between, this thorough overview of mouse behavior will be a welcome reference, as was the first edition.
