To clarify the effects of ozone on behavior, drinking activity was observed continuously in animals exposed to ozone at concentrations of 0.2, 0.4, and 0.8 ppm for 1 wk. Drinking decreased considerably on the first day after onset of exposure. On the first day the suppression rate was calculated to be 28.1%, 69.5%, and 93.1%, for the 0.2 ppm, 0.4 ppm, and 0.8 ppm group, respectively. The suppression of drinking and recovery were dependent on the concentration of ozone.

Development of tolerance against ozone effects on drinking and eating behaviors in rats by intermittent exposures
AbstractThis study exammed the effects of intermittent exposures to 0.4–0.8 ppm ozone (O3) on drinking and eating behaviors in rats to evaluate the development of tolerance to O3 exposure. When ratsExpand
Effects of ozone and nitrogen dioxide on drinking and eating behaviors in mice.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that photochemical oxidants suppress drinking and eating behaviors in mice and that they recover thereafter under the continuous exposure conditions. Expand
Effects of Ozone and Nitrogen Dioxide on Drinking and Eating Behaviors in Mice1
Male ICR mice were exposed continuously to ozone (O3) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) for 7 days to examine the effects on drinking and eating behaviors. Ozone at 0.1 ppm did not affect drinking andExpand
Medium and long-term behavioral effects in mice of extended gestational exposure to ozone.
TLDR
It is shown that prenatal O3 exposure, even when extended to include a period before the start of pregnancy and the preimplantation phase, does not produce major or widespread somatic and neurobehavioral effects. Expand
Effect of nutritional status and ozone exposure on rat brain serotonin.
TLDR
The results suggest a multiplicative effect from the nutritional factor and ozone exposure in the changes observed concerning serotonergic metabolism, and malnourished animals show low serotonin concentrations with respect to well-nourishing animals. Expand
Ozone exposure affects feeding and locomotor behavior of adult Bufo marinus.
TLDR
It is suggested that a single 4-h exposure to O3 depresses toad feeding behavior after exposure but had little effect on voluntary locomotor behavior. Expand
[Study on the water intake of rat during long-term inhalation of diesel exhaust].
TLDR
The results showed that the measurement of the water intake of rat is an useful parameter to detect the biological effect on inhalation experiment, and suggested that diesel exhaust might affect the circadian rhythm of theWater intake in rats. Expand
Effects of Repeated Exposure to 0.15 Ppm 03 for Four Months on Bronchial Reactivity in Guinea Pigs (4 hrs/day; 5 days/wk)
TLDR
The effective concentration of histamine that produced a 100% increase of baseline Rt in O3 group was higher than that of filtered air group, and significant differences were observed between both groups, suggesting adaptation during repeated exposures to O3 in bronchial sensitivity to histamine. Expand
Developmental exposure to ozone induces subtle changes in swimming navigation of adult mice.
TLDR
Following exposure to ozone from the beginning of neonatal life until weaning, adult CD-1 mice were tested in swimming navigation, a sensitive indicator for hippocampal damage, and mice exposed to O3 had a strong tendency to make turns to the left while the controls, independent of sex, preferred clockwise turns.

Brain noradrenaline changes in rats prenatally exposed to ozone.
TLDR
It is concluded that prenatal exposure of 1.0ppm ozone causes embryonic/fetal changes manifested in postnatal levels of noradrenaline concentrations in the brains of rats. Expand

Altered Function in Animals Inhaling Low Concentrations of Ozone and Nitrogen Dioxide
Abstract Quantitative measurements of respiratory function of guinea pigs were made before, during, and after exposure to low concentrations of ozone, and nitrogen dioxide. The earliest effectsExpand
The role of ozone in radiation avoidance in the mouse.
TLDR
Mice subjected to ozone in one-half of a test cage show a decreased activity and an avoidance reaction similar to that seen with radiation, and no change in the radiation avoidance reaction is observed when the oxygen concentration in the cage is raised to 95%. Expand
Modification of rat operant behavior by ozone exposure.
TLDR
Ozone exposure may induce extrapulmonary consequences, such as reductions in the spontaneous activity of rodents, or complaints in humans of lethargy, headache, chest discomfort, and other subjective symptoms, which reflect reduced inclination rather than impaired physiological capacity to respond. Expand
Adaptation to short-term respiratory effects of ozone in men exposed repeatedly.
TLDR
It is suggested that at least some humans adapt to O3 exposure at concentrations occurring in severe community air pollution episodes, to the extent that obvious acute respiratory effects are prevented and other adverse effects of O3 may not be prevented. Expand
Behavioral evaluation of the irritating properties of ozone.
TLDR
Ozone exposures were alternated every other day with ammonia as a control for any changes that might occur as a result of repeated ozone exposure, and the number of escape responses increased and the duration of ozone tolerated decreased. Expand

TLDR
Irritation and cough may account for decreased vital capacity and expiratory flow rates and thickening of alveolar wall by edema fluid was suggested as a likely cause of fall in D/sub LCO. Expand

TLDR
Results indicate that the drinkometer could have extensive applications within many fields of research, as well as reliability and applicability, and the daily patterns of activity and eating ran nearly parallel with the drinking behavior. Expand
Microanalysis of ozone depression of motor activity.
TLDR
Analysis of the individual components of wheel running revealed differential susceptibility to ozone; an increase in the interval between bursts of running was primarily responsible for the decrease in the number of revolutions and this interval was also more sensitive to disruption than either time per revolution or burst length at low concentrations.

TLDR
The epithelial response in the terminal bronchioles and alveoli was examined after exposure to approximately 0.5 and 0.9 ppm ozone and the basement lamina was left devoid of an epithelium with the exception of type 2 cells, which were very resistant and retained a relatively normal appearance.
