Brain weight, as a function of age, in miniature swine

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Brain weights were recorded from 128 'normal' Sinclair (S 1) miniature swine from the 8th week of the 16 week gestation period to maturity. Mean brain weight, as a function of body weight, decreased markedly from 12 wk of gestation to 4 wk postpartum. The increase in brain weight was linear from 8 wk of gestation until 13 wk postpartum, with a decline in the rate of increase thereafter.
