“Effects of lysergic acid diethylamide on the maternal behavior of the rat.”. 
Journal of Psychology.. 1970;75:271-273.
The effects of lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD - 25) on the maternal behavior of rats were studied to test the hypothesis that LSD-25 will disrupt such behavior as represented by nursing behavior. Nine days after parturition, 20 male rats of the 4, Wistar strain were matched according to their, nursing behavior and assigned to an experimental and a control group. The experimental animals were injected intraperitoneally with .2mg/kg of, LSD-25, while the control animals were given .9aline solution. Fifteen minutes after the injec-, tion, they were administered a nursing test and observed for 3 hours. Most of the experimental animals did not start nursing until 10 hours after the initiation of the test, whereas all of the con - trol animals began nursing within 5 minutes. The mean nursing time of the experimental group was significantly shorter than that of the control group, indicating that the administration of hallucinogenic compound disrupted the maternal behavior. 6 references.
