The rapid onset of tolerance to ataxic effects of ethanol in mice

Abstract

We have developed a precise quantal method for assessing the sensitivity to ethanol in the mouse. Mice placed on a clamped stationary horizontal dowel are scored ataxi or not ataxic depending on whether they are able to remian on the dowel during a 30-s observation period. A threshold blood ethanol concentration is determined by assaying tail blood drawn… (More)
