Synopsis: 
The effect of ascorbic acid against long-lasting behavioural impairments induced by prenatal nicotine exposure was studied in male offspring using a spatial memory paradigm. Ascorbic acid was found to be effective against these neurological perturbations.
ABSTRACT
 
Introduction: The long lasting behavioural and cognitive impairments in offspring prenatally exposed to nicotine have been confirmed in animal models. In the present study, we investigated the effect of ascorbic acid on prenatal nicotine exposure induced behavioral deficits in male offspring of rats.
