Abstract

Critical periods of antenatal development are characterized by selective responses to chronic exposure to extreme factors of various origins. If we take into account that these factors are integral attributes of the modern conditions of society, then as a result of their constant impact, it is likely that violations in the relationship of the “mother-fetus” system will be accompanied by serious complications in the fetus. We studied electrophysiological disturbances against the background of social isolation in organisms of a new generation of different age levels exposed to prenatal stress factors.

The experiments were carried out on 45-day-old white laboratory rats of the Wistar line. Upon reaching the age of 30 days, when the young animals can already feed on their own, the animals were placed in isolation for 15 days. In the experiments, 22 individuals were used (6 intact and 16 experimental). The intact group of animals during the entire pregnancy was kept under standard vivarium conditions in metal cages 50x30x30 cm in size, 2-3 individuals in each. The experimental group of animals in the prefetal period of pregnancy (E8-E15) and during the 15-day isolation period were placed in special metal cages 14x8x20 cm in size. After the experiment, all animals were placed in standard vivarium conditions. The EEG was recorded from the visual cortex.
