Abstract:

A preliminary study indicated that young rats have a greater resistance to acceleration stress of 20 positive G than do more mature rats. The present study compared the tolerance of onemonth old rats with three-month old rats at 20 positive G and found that there was a significant difference in favor of the one-month old animals. Twenty rats, which survived the initial centrifugation at one month of age were retested at three months and showed no significant difference in tolerance when compared with control rats on the same age.
