Fetal alcohol spectrum disorders (FASD) remain the most common preventable cause of behavioural abnormalities and cognitive deficits, yet little is known about the biological mechanisms involved in FASD pathology. Maternal voluntary ethanol consumption in mice may be a useful model for establishing the biological basis of moderate ethanol exposure phenotypes, which make up the majority of FASD cases. We have employed a two-bottle choice paradigm of maternal ethanol consumption throughout… CONTINUE READING
