Anthropometric data and computerized electroencaphalogram analysis during quiet, indeterminate, and active sleep were obtained from infants of mothers of four groups: (1) heavy drinking mothers (greater than 2 ounces of alcohol per day); (2) nondrinking mothers; (3) smoking, nondrinking mothers; (4) nonsmoking, nondrinking mothers. Infants in groups 1 and 2(More)
Infants of alcoholic mothers showed prominent EEG hypersynchrony in all three stages of sleep: in quiet sleep, indeterminate sleep and active-REM sleep. Spectral analysis of the EEG using fast Fourier transform revealed significant increase in power in most frequency bands in all three stages of sleep in infants born to alcoholic mothers when compared with(More)
beta-endorphin, administered into the cerebral ventricles of rats, provokes a sequence of behavioural and electroencephalographic (EEG) responses similar to those observed with general anaesthetics used clinically. Initial behavioural and EEG excitation, motor incoordination and exaggerated responsiveness to sensory stimuli are followed by a stage of rigid(More)
Newborn infants of mothers who drink heavily (greater than 2 oz alcohol per day) during pregnancy have been shown to have hypersynchrony of the EEG. The possibility that hypersynchrony is related to acute alcohol withdrawal was tested. Eleven preterm infants of mothers who drank heavily ("alcoholic") were studied at a postnatal age of 4 to 6 weeks using(More)
