Basal locomotion rates of animals with altered lin-12 activity. Animals were tested under identical conditions as reversal assays in 10 second bins. A single body bend was scored as a complete dorsal to ventral oscillation. Only forward moving animals were scored; if an animal reversed direction during the assay, that data point was discarded.
