Table 1 Locomotor function parameters: Tower and Hourglass data

From: Recovery time after intra-abdominal transmitter placement for telemetric (neuro) physiological measurement in freely moving common marmosets (Callitrix jacchus)

Parameter (Mean ± Sem) Days
-7 - -3 3-7 8-14 15-21 22-27 28-36 37-48
Tower: 23.76 4.60 7.60 17.92 15.55 NT 19.47
Level changes (#) ±2.05 ±0.62 ±1.30 ±2.51 ±0.88   ±0.24
Hourglass: 2.40 3.89 0.96 0.76 1.52 0.96 0.80
Turning time (s) ±1.00 ±2.17 ±0.29 ±0.27 ±0.36 ±0.25 ±0.27
  1. The Tower test data shows a reduction in the total number of level changes after surgery.
  2. The Hourglass data shows an increase in righting time compared to baseline values 1 week after surgery (days 3-7); thereafter righting time was normalised/decreased.
  3. NT: not tested.
