Effect of maternal n-3 FA consumption during neurodevelopment on offspring immobility in the forced swim test. Pups were placed in a cylinder of water, to simulate an inescapable stressor, for 15 min on day 1 and for 5 min on day 2. Day 2 video recordings were scored for immobility. Data shown are seconds of immobility on day 2 for pups with (+ n-3 FAs; n = 7) and without n-3 FAs during neurodevelopment (− n-3 FAs, n = 10)
