Undernutrition of rodents has been claimed to result in long-term behavioural deficits in motor coordination and spatial learning ability, although the literature on this is somewhat conflicting. We have recently been engaged in a study of the effects of either pre- or post-weaning undernutrition on longevity in mice. As part of this ageing study, we have also assessed the effects of such nutritional regimes on motor coordination and spatial learning ability of mice. Motor coordination was… CONTINUE READING
