In the present study, the effects of zinc and alumin um chloride administration on coordination and motor activity of their male and female offspring h ave been investigated by using Rotarod for assess animal’s motor activity and coordination. Aluminum administered as AlCl 3 (0, 200, 400, 600, 800 mg/kg/day) and zinc as znCl 2 (0, 20, 30, 50, 70, 100 mg/kg/day) in drinking wat er for two weeks during lactation, and their female and male offspring were tested respectively after 44 days and one month. The results showed that maternal dietary exposure Z inc consumption (20, 30, 50, 70, 100 mg/kg/day) don't have effect on motor activity of their female offspring. Also, Aluminum consumption (200,400,600 mg/kg/day) don't have effect on motor activity of t heir offspring but 800 mg/kg/day significantly (p<0.05) impairs motor activity. These studies have demonstrated that consumption of 800 mg/kg/day AlCl 3 during lactation, can impairment coordination of th eir male and female offspring. But different doses of ZnCl 2 administration don’t have effect on motor activity on their male a nd female offspring.
