Synaptic development in brains of rats exposed perinatally to ethanol.

Journal Article (Journal Article)

Development of brain synaptosomal uptakes of 3H-norepinephrine and 3H-dopamine in pups whose mothers received ethanol were nearly normal. However, development of synaptosomal uptake of 3H-serotonin was significantly lower than in controls, while uptake of 3H-norepinephrine into synaptic storage vesicles was increased.
