1. Trait: TA = Total activity in open field test (observations were multiplied by 10-2); TF = Time freezing during cue; FB = Fecal boli after cue (observations were multipled by 101).

2. Model: (1) = polygenic; (2) = genomic; (3) = polygenic and genomic; with 100/10/2.5% of the markers allowed to have an effect.
