In other words, he said, maternal age and binge drinking interactively contribute to attentional problems in alcohol-exposed children.

Kodituwakku (Kodi), associate professor of pediatrics and neurosciences at the University of New Mexico School of Medicine. "Atypical brain development in children with FASD results from the interactive effects of PAE, genetic/epigenetic factors, and the quality of postnatal environment," he explained.
