The behavior of four groups of white mice was compared using the “hole-board” test. One male and one female group were chronically poisoned with disulfoton while similar untreated male and female groups served as controls. The scores of the poisoned animals were significantly higher than those of the controls, indicating that the poisoned animals exhibited increased exploratory behavior. There were no sex differences.
