Acetaldehyde, the first metabolite of ethanol, was recently suggested to contribute to many behavioral effects of ethanol, although few studies have directly investigated the behavioral effects of acetaldehyde itself. The aim of the present study was to characterize the locomotor, hypnotic, anxiolytic-like and amnesic effects of acetaldehyde in C57BL/6J mice. Increasing doses of acetaldehyde (0–300 mg/kg) were injected intraperitoneally and their effects on a series of representative behaviors… CONTINUE READING
