The development and functioning of the central nervous system have been shown to be affected by maternal stress. To investigate the effects of prenatal stress on the cerebellar interneuronal connectivity, rat embryos are exposed to stress on their embryonic day (E) 7 and 14, by keeping the dam in close-fitting wire mesh cylinders, for 6 h. After completion of the cerebellar development at postnatal day (P) 30, stereological procedures were used at the light and electron microscopic level to… CONTINUE READING
