BACKGROUND Ethanol produces abnormalities in the developing nervous system, with certain regions being vulnerable during well-defined periods. Neonatal rodent cerebellum is particularly susceptible(More)
The developing central nervous system is extremely sensitive to ethanol, with well-defined temporal periods of vulnerability. Many brain regions are particularly susceptible to ethanol during the(More)
The developing central nervous system (CNS) is highly susceptible to ethanol, with acute or chronic exposure producing an array of anomalies and cell loss. Certain periods of vulnerability have been(More)
BACKGROUND This study investigated ethanol influences on intracellular events that predispose developing neurons toward apoptosis and the capacity of the antioxidant α-tocopherol (vitamin E) and the(More)
Developmental ethanol exposure leads to a variety of abnormalities in the central nervous system (CNS). Mechanisms proposed as underlying these effects include alterations of protective antioxidant(More)
