Abstract

Drinking during pregnancy is a major public health issue. The majority of pregnant women consume some alcohol during pregnancy or the peri-conception period, which is extremely concerning given the potential consequences associated with prenatal alcohol exposure. We will study the effects of low to moderate and binge drinking during pregnancy in early school-aged children by testing for subtle alterations in craniofacial shape, brain structure and function, and neurobehavioural functioning.
