Abstract: 

Introduction: There are several evidences that show various environmental stresses during pregnancy, affect physiological behavior of their offspring. In this study the effects of REM (Rapid Eye Movement) sleep deprivation of pregnant rats on spatial learning of the adult male offspring by Morris water maze were investigated.
Methods: We used water tank technique for inducing REM sleep deprivation. Learning indices of the pregnant rats offspring which were deprivated 3 days (E14, E15 and E16) in the small platform (diameter: 5.5 cm) compared with the large platform (diameter: 19 cm) (sham) and undeprived (control) groups.
Results: Our results showed that the distance traveled to locate the hidden platform in target quadrant and latency to find the hidden platform significantly were decreased in offspring of REM sleep deprivated group and sham in compared with control (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Based on our results, it seems that, sleep deprivation due to inducing the stress dependent changes could be caused increases in spatial learning of adult male offspring rats.
