High gravity simulated by continual centrifugation can evoke a slower growth with mice and other organisms. For white mice a transient reduction in food intake also occurs and is believed to be, in part, responsible for the reduced growth. Fields as high as 7 G's were employed. Mice of ages which varied from one to seven weeks at the onset of exposure were studied. A more drastic decrement in food consumption occurred with the older mice at higher field intensities.
