Changes of long term potentiation (LTP) as an elementary learning model in the first generation offspring of fumonisin B 1 (FB 1) treated pregnant rats were studied. Prenatal exposition to FB 1 caused marked and significant alterations and anomalies in in vitro brain slice bioelectric activity. This is the first study to use in vitro rat cortex slices as biosensors monitoring LTP changes in offspring after FB 1 exposition of pregnant rats, and providing evidence for brain functional bioelectric anomalies of neurodevelopmental origin caused by mycotoxin FB 1.
