Abstract

Early experience, mediated by mother's care, exerts long-term effects on the formation of behavioral phenotype. However, there are no published data on the effects of such experience on the results of early learning. We investigated the effects of maternal deprivation associated with handling in 129Sv mice during postnatal days 3-6 on the results of olfactory learning with mother's grooming imitation used as the reinforcement on postnatal day 8. Mother deprivation and handling procedure are shown to impair early olfactory learning.
