Abstract

The exposure to a high fat diet in youth and its impact on brain development and sensorimotor skills are currently unknown. The purpose of this study is to determine the critical stages of when sensorimotor integration begin to decrease. One-month old male and female C57BL/6 J mice were given either a control diet (10% calorie from fat) or a high fat diet (45% calorie from fat). The dietary consumption and body weight were monitored weekly and blood glucose level was measured monthly. After two months, we observed that the high fat male mice had a significant decrease in diet consumption compared to control (p
