Fetal ethanol exposure alters the behavioral response to ethanol odor in adolescence. Mean composite reflexive sniffing index values (± sem) for all adolescent animals exposed to water infused demonstrator in adolescence as a function of maternal treatment. Ethanol animals with no further exposure to the drug display an altered behavioral response to ethanol odor when compared to pair-fed and free choice controls. ET/H2O = prenatal ethanol exposed animals with water exposure in adolescence. PF/H2O = pair-fed animals with water exposure in adolescence. FC/H2O = free choice animals with water exposure in adolescence.
