Rats were exposed to ethanol from postnatal day 4 to day 10, using an artificial rearing procedure. One group received ethanol administered by a cyclic regimen, which resulted in high peak blood ethanol concentrations (BACs). Another group received the same daily dose of ethanol using a regimen which resulted in stable, moderate BACs. Two control groups consisted of rats reared artificially but not exposed to alcohol and rats reared normally by dams. All rats were raised to adulthood… CONTINUE READING
