Fetal exposure to ethanol is highly predictive of the propensity to ingest ethanol during adolescence and in utero chemosensory plasticity has been implicated as a contributing factor in this process. Recent rodent studies have shown that fetal ethanol exposure results in a tuned unconditioned sniffing and neurophysiological olfactory response to ethanol odor in infant animals. Importantly, a significant proportion of increased ethanol avidity at this age can be attributed to the tuned… CONTINUE READING
