Inhalation of low concentrations (75 and 150 ppm) of carbon monoxide (CO) by pregnant rats from days 0 to 20 of gestation leads to alterations in habituation and working memory in young adult male offspring subjected to the novel exploration object test. In particular, lack of habituation upon the second presentation of the objects and failure in the ability to discriminate between the novel and the familiar object were found in CO (75 and 150 ppm)-exposed offspring. These alterations were not… CONTINUE READING
