Effect of undernutrition on the development of the brain in rats before birth



Effect of undernutrition on the development of the brain in rats before birth



Comptes Rendus des Seances de la Societe de Biologie 170(5): 951-955



For 8 days before conception and during pregnancy female Wistar rats were restricted to 6 g daily of a diet of casein 5, sunflower oil 1, starch and sucrose 86, cellulose 2 and minerals 5%, with vitamins. Controls were given 15 g daily of a diet with protein 22, lipid 5 and carbohydrate 52%. The brain was removed from foetuses at days 17, 18 and 20 and from newborn young.
