Fig. 7

Maternal exposure to carbon black nanoparticles affects behaviour in the open field test during a 3 min observation period in male and female offspring. a shows the total ambulation during the 3 min test period where, overall, exposed offspring moved a longer distance than control offspring. b shows time spent in the central zone of field, where prenatally exposed offspring overall spent significantly longer time than exposed offspring. c shows the number of visits to the central zone, showing that prenatally exposed offspring visited the central zone more frequently than frequently than control offspring. d gives the velocity of ambulation. Mean ± SEM, n = 9–13
