TEMPORAL PATTERNING OF GROOMING IN THREE LINES OF MICE: SOME FACTORS INFLUENCING CONTROL LEVELS OF A COMPLEX BEHAVIOUR by L. R. NORTHUP 1) 2) (Department of Biology, University of Oregon, Eugene, U.S.A.) (With 1 Figure) (Acc. 10-V-1975) I. Grooming is one of the most thoroughly analyzed behaviours in mice and several other animals. Grooming behaviour has been divided into sub- components in analyses of both rodent and marsupial behaviour patterning. FENTRESS (1968a, I968b) divided self-grooming in two species of vole (Microtus agrestis and Clethrionoynys britannicus) into face-, belly-, and back-grooming. EWER (1968) found a somewhat similar division of com- ponents of grooming behaviour in the marsupial Sminthopsis crassicaudata. Very thorough descriptions of grooming in mice have been given by EISENBERG ( I96a ) in a study of Peromyscus maniculatus and P. californicus, and by FENTRESS ( 1972; FENTRESS & STILWELL, 1973) in studies of inbred and wild Mus musculus. EISENBERG found that grooming in P eromyscus can be divided into face-sides and back-tail grooming. He also showed that face-grooming could itself be divided into several subcomponent move- ments. Such an analysis of face-grooming in terms of individual limb move- ments has been performed by FENTRESS and STILWELL (FENTRESS,
