Abstract

The effects of a complex of ambient air pollutants in the mining- and metallurgy-industry areas on the development of the generation F1 were studied in the experiments on albino rats. The complex of adverse chemical agents of the ambient air was found to exert a pronounced embryotoxic effects on the postnatal development of the generation F1, as manifested by a reduction in the measures of viability, lower size, impairments in the status and physiological development of the central nervous system, in the mechanism of formation of conditioned reflexes, and by the predominance of excitement over inhibition.
