    P K Pilz
    Universitat Tubingen, Germany

    Behav Neurosci 118:975-83. 2004
    ..In both strains, habituation of the TSR did not generalize to the ASR, and vice versa. From this, the authors concluded that habituation of startle is located in the sensory afferent branches of the pathway...

    A Schanbacher
    Universitat Tubingen, Germany
    Physiol Behav 60:1341-6. 1996
