The incidence of initial audiogenic seizures in mice from crosses between a susceptible and a resistant inbred strain is attributable to the effects of a single pair of alleles. The locus responsible for this behavioral variation is located in Linkage Group VIII of the mouse. Sensitization-dependent convulsions are influenced in whole or in part by alleles at an independent locus.
