Abstract Rationale . Ethanol impairs performance in the water maze in rats. A detailed behavioral analysis is required to fully evaluate the nature of the impairment. Objectives. A detailed behavioral analysis was carried out to evaluate the effect of ethanol on performance in the water maze task in male hooded rats given 2.0 or 6.0 g/kg ethanol by gavage. Multiple measures of water maze strategies learning and spatial learning were studied. Methods . Water maze trials were recorded on… CONTINUE READING
