The present study tested the effect of infantile interactions (including suckling) with ethanol-treated mothers on later behavioral responsiveness to ethanol's sensory properties. In Experiment 1, pups suckled from dams subjected to a 2.5 g/kg ethanol dose (i.g.) or water-treated females during postnatal days (PDs) 3, 5, 7, 9, 11, and 13. During… CONTINUE READING
