Forelimb and hind limb stance widths were calculated as the perpendicular distance between the major axes of the left and right paw images during peak stance.
Forelimb stride dynamics in these 3NP-treated mice did not differ significantly from saline-treated mice and the three 3NP-treated mice that were able to walk on the treadmill belt at 34 cm/s (Figure 4, lower panel).
