  This study evaluates the effect of light deprivation on spatial working and reference memory. Light and dark reared rats at the age of 40 (P40) and 60 (P60) postnatal days were trained in a radial maze. Present results indicated that in the working tasks, the P40 dark reared rats outperformed their light reared counterparts. No difference in performance was observed between the P40 light and dark reared rats. In both the light and dark reared groups, the P60 animals outperformed the P40 ones on the working memory experiments. In contrast, the P40 light and dark reared groups showed superiority to the P60 animals in the reference memory tasks. Time was found to drastically undermine the effects of sensory experience by eliminating the difference between the light and dark reared rats` performances.

  The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of corn-soybean basal diets containing (5% tallow, 5% fish oil and 5% fish oil with vitamin E and zinc) each one in two temperatures (21 and 32°C) on immune response and blood parameters of Arbor Acres (AA) broiler growing from 1-42 days of age. The results demonstrated that heat stress decreased bursa of fabricius weight and spleen weight also high ambient temperature decreased humoral and cell-mediate immune responses and increased hetrophil to lymphocyte ratio (H L-1). Fish oil+vitamin E and zinc diet improved humoral and cell-mediate immune responses, decreased H L-1 ratio and increased bursa of fabricius and spleen weight at two temperatures. The diets containing tallow decreased bursa of fabricius weight and spleen weight. In chicks fed by fish oil, the response to 2-4 Dinitrochlorobenzene (DNCB) was improved. It did not have significant influence on Phytohemagglutinin M (PHA-M) and Sheep Red Blood Cells (SRBC). The results of experimental temperatures on blood parameters demonstrated that high ambient temperature increased cholesterol, triglyceride, glucose, hematocrite percentage and serum Malondialdehyde (MDA), although it did not affect total protein. Higher cholesterol and triglyceride observed in chicks fed with diet containing tallow and higher MDA in chicks fed with diet containing fish oil. Fish oil plus vitamin E and zinc decreased cholesterol, triglyceride, MDA and glucose significantly. Fat type did not affect total serum protein and hematocrite percentage.
