Abstract:
The effects of postnatal zinc deficiency on the development of the hippocampal formation was assessed using the Morris water tank task. Tests at days 28, 29, 88 and 89 revealed no differences between ad libitum zinc deficient animals and ad libitum controls. Subjects whose food intake was restricted but was zinc adequate were impaired on the hippocampal version of this task but not the control version. These results suggest that previous reports of hippocampal impairment secondary to zinc deficiency should be re-evaluated.
