An investigation of mechanisms underlying ethanol-induced intoxication. Animals were scored using an observation-based rating scale of ataxia in combination with automated assessment of activity and motor function in an open field. Animals were measured at baseline and then again following ethanol administration at one of two randomly-assigned doses: (1) EtOH 2.75 g/kg body weight i.p.; (2) EtOH 3.0 g/kg body weight i.p.

Summary of procedures that were conducted
• behavior observation Observed gait, hindlimb splay 10 min and 30 min after ethanol i.p. (several doses).
• open field test Locomotor activity. Ethanol i.p. (several doses) vs. control (saline i.p.). 45s test.
