In the present study, we analyzed the relationship between body mass, food and water intake, and behavioral activity in pregnant and lactating rat dams exposed to continuous, 1.5-g centrifugation for 32 days. The period of centrifugation spanned from Gestational day (G) 11 of the rats' 22-day pregnancy until Postnatal day (P) 21, the time of weaning.
